A domain, for example, is a-example-dns.com, and its NS record ip is
18.104.22.168. My client uses my DNS to query the NS record of a-example-dns.com.
But my DNS can not reach to 22.214.171.124(host is not reachable). If I use bind 8
as my DNS server, my client can get the NS record return. If I use bind 9 as
DNS server, my client will get a timeout message.
If 126.96.36.199 is reachable, but it's a lame server, bind 9 will return
"server fail". In bind 8, it will return the IP of NS record.
Is it normal in bind 9? Which option do I need to set in named.conf that
it can let bind 9 response NS record instead of timeout or server fail? Or
it's just a design in bind 9? This question seems to be a FAQ. Can anyone
give me a hint?
Thanks a lot.
