if its a box-over-in-the corner that one day will be your DNS server
somewhere but right now its just a ip address on a network you're trying
to test before deploying .. it did get a name eventually.

and .. surely not all the nameservers are necessarily named, only the ones
published to the world, you could have internal servers that don;t answer
external queries (such as a primary master server with two slaves used as
authoratative servers to the world, whilst your primary master is left
untroubled) in which case the primary master would not need a name just
an address, and you might want to query it directly yourself to make sure
it was not telling porkies. ??
