Although, on DNS Report, it does say "A FAIL record indicates a problem
that really should be fixed", whereas a WARN is a "configuration issue
that is often not worth pursuing."
Personally, I think it's down to the sysadmin's policy really, and that
yes DNS Report should downgrade it to WARN, as it doesn't indicate a DNS
zone is liable to fail.
Also, can anyone clarify how the "Single Point of Failure" test is
worked out? For example on my domain:
www.dnsstuff.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=www.andycc.net, it reports a
WARN on this test, saying that 1 of it's 2 tests cannot work out if my
nameservers are on different class C IPs - which they are, 184.108.40.206
and 220.127.116.11. Why is the test failing? I know it's not a problem
as I know the servers are in different physical locations, I just like
to have a full PASS :-)
