com.    304     SOA     genieweb.com. root.genieweb.com. (
                        11      ; serial
                        10800   ; refresh (3 hours)
                        3600    ; retry (1 hour)
                        604800  ; expire (7 days)

This was cached on one our name servers.  Sure enough, dig any com
@genieweb.com shows:

I wonder if this is what has been causing random COM domain lookups to
fail for random people at random places.

The time I can see this affecting a name server is if it does a lookup
for a domain that's lamely delegated to genieweb.com, and then caches
the 'com' reply.

I've already left voicemail for the genieweb people.
