I've had lame delegations really mess up my DNS servers.  They spend all
their time asking the top-level servers, who just point back to them.

I had a related problem just recently.

tsp.net is about to move.  baylink.com and tbtoday.com (among others)
will be taking over the physical hardware, servers, and network

So I tried to submit host registrations for ns1. and ns2.baylink.com.

One went through fine, the other disappeared.  The _reason_ it
disappeared was that the IP address already was registered... as
tsp-hst (tsp.net).

Hold on, cause this is where it gets pertinent.

I had to call and have the domain reg for tbtoday.com hand walked.
They ran it through... wih tsp.net as one of the nameservers.  They
didn't confirm it, although they did carbon the registration approval
to the registered contact for that nameserver.

So, what _is_ their policy supposed to be here?
