Subject: Duff root nameserver

For your enjoyment, it appears to us that one of the root nameservers has
no information about the .com domains.

UKERNA IT Support queried a problem with domain lookups and our
investigation
revealed that a.GTLD-SERVERS.NET is returning NXDOMAIN responses to
.com lookups.

Eg:

dig microsoft.com @a.GTLD-SERVERS.NET.

;; got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 6
;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0
;; QUERY SECTION:
;;      microsoft.com, type = A, class = IN
