Sorry, I differ - help yourself, by reading what is already
written on an error would seem a sensible course of action,
especially on one so extensively documented as lame servers

I personally think suppressing lame server messages is a bad
thing in general. Just because a lot of bad DNS configs exist
doesn't mean you should ignore them, the availablity of a domain
your users are trying to use is usually in peril. And software
doesn't distinguish when ignoring errors if it is one of your
domains or not either.

And where do you think a missing period would cause this error?

Most likely I think they have a stray record like "localhost ns
