Title : A Common Operational Problem in DNS Servers - Failure
Author : M. Andrews
Filename : draft-ietf-dnsop-no-response-issue-05.txt
Pages : 20
Date : 2016-09-18
The DNS is a query / response protocol. Failure to respond or to
respond correctly to queries causes both immediate operational
problems and long term problems with protocol development.
This document identifies a number of common kinds of queries which
some servers either fail to respond or else respond incorrectly.
This document also suggests procedures for TLD and other zone
operators to apply to help reduce / eliminate the problem.
The document does not look at the DNS data itself, just the structure
of the responses.
