But depending on setup its probably hard to get such large
packets through your local recursive DNS, not to speak
about the firewall. Maybe its possible to signal truncation
and force a TCP connect?
Yes, this is with the TCP transport. With a suitably prepared zone, I
can get up to
$ getent hosts ... | wc -l
A records (over DNS, just to be clear).
