i'm keenly interested in the background here.  note that you're welcome to
use my recursive nameservers, just send me your address range for my ACL.
but beyond that, i'm trying to understand what you mean by "resolve problems"
since i just don't quite see what's possible, at least for $150/month.

if someone tries to look something up and it's not there, then the greatest
likelihood is that the problem is on the authority server's side or somewhere
in the network.  how do you "resolve DNS problems" in those two cases?  is it
enough to fault-isolate, or do you count on some kind of active assistance,
and if so, what?
