The Generic NIC project, using an old EUREG system, developed a new
monitoring tool of TLD:
All TLDs are monitored twice a day with the Zonecheck tool and a
specially crafted policy (which is, on most points, more
latitudinarian than Zonecheck's default policy).
The results are interesting :-)
Most common problems:
* various form of lame delegations (unexisting name server or not
configured for the domain) which *may* be because of IANA, but not
* name server claiming it is recursive but not replying to some
queries that a recursive server would allow.
