Now I'm confused. Since time immemorial (well, OK, about a decade)
I've been configuring all my name servers to answer authoritatively for
127.0.0.1 PTR localhost.
localhost. A 127.0.0.1
I'm *quite* sure that I read copious documentation and I'm supposed to
be doing that. Has practice changed? Have I (and countless others)
been misunderstanding the documentation for years? Or am I
misunderstanding your post just now?
