Right, but bind8 says:
; <<>> DiG 8.1 <<>> @dns.nask.pl a.pl. ns +norecurse
; (2 servers found)
;; res options: init defnam dnsrch
;; got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 10
;; flags: qr; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 2
;; QUERY SECTION:
;; a.pl, type = NS, class = IN
;; ANSWER SECTION:
a.pl. 1D IN NS ns2.nss.pl.
a.pl. 1D IN NS ns1.nss.pl.
So it is not referral but answer.
