Any self-respecting network administrator, (who knows what he/she is doing),
would have planned for that
And setup some kind of overideing ruleset, that will allways allow
communiction to/from it's own resources.
A.K.A, the "BLACKHOLE / IP BANNING" would be overiden for IP's & resources,
like that of it's DNS Servers.
But, that could, too, be exploited.
If Z spoofs packets using the ip of the DNS Server (the one that is not
banned because of the overide or 'never ban these ips, etc')
Would be allowed to send those packets, SYN Packet, etc, as was stated, ad
infinitum.  

As, they say, no computer or server is ever, *TRULY*, secure - even with a
software or hardware firwall, or 'voodoo-like' security measures.

Dear Eliah Kagan,

Z sends spoofed packets coming from the DNS server of X even more
interesting..
