Interesting. I had always assumed it was a general case, but
had never tested the difference between the zone apex and the rest
of contents. I can confirm this with one of my zones, where a slave
server is Novell 5.1
LOC elgin.edu @ns1.pcc.edu -> NXDOMAIN
LOC webmail2.elgin.edu @ns1.pcc.edu -> NOERROR
I'm testing with LOC, because I had to insert a dummy AAAA
record to continue to receive mail reliably.
