The rs.dns-oarc.net zone is broken because it returns a CNAME for

I just got a problem report from a user who has a few personal domains

no longer do.

I've said that the domains are misconfigured, but since this is a
relatively widespread misconfiguration, I think it's likely to cause
more complaints. Tiresome.

it's the very common result of misconfiguration that something sometimes
does not work, while sometimes it does.

I usually advise people to fix things inctead of complaining that something
"misconfigured doesn't work sometimes" - that is the definition of
misconfiguration, isn't it?

especially DNS, with caching, TTLs and DNSSEC - there's not enough room for
making every possible mistake and expecting it to work.
