In your prior posts, you indicated that one or more of your
name servers were running BIND 9.1.2 or 9.1.3.  I'm not sure
when the `minimal-responses' feature was implemented but these
older BIND versions are suspect in this regard.  As Mark likes
to say, these are well past the "use by" date anyway and should
be upgraded to the current release, 9.2.1.
