You might be more concerned about correctness. Try to build a zone with
*.fred.sam CNAME joe
joe IN A 127.0.0.5
And then query for the A record for john.fred.sam
MS only returns the CNAME, not the resulting A from joe.
As far as I know, this has not been fixed by MS.
There are probably other cases as well. MS *could* (but won't) hire some
folks to sit down with the relevant RFC documents, write a test case for
every statement in those RFCs, and run the resulting test suite against
their server. They cannot claim they don't have enough money to do that.
