Hhm, I think I would disagree here. After all, their name servers do return
SOA records when queried directly, even if they are too many.
The interesting bit is, if I let my own name server do the querying, I get
; <<>> DiG 9.3.3rc2 <<>> @server traininghott.com. soa
; (1 server found)
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 49324
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;traininghott.com. IN SOA
;; Query time: 331 msec
but a tcpdump/wireshark analysis shows that there were two answers (the
SOA RRs, two name servers, and nothing in the additional section; 2/2/0
in tcpdump output). This means that the querying server, which runs BIND
9.4.1_P1 btw., has decided to discard the response. I guess this kinda
clarifies my original question "What kind of consequences can I expect
trying to resolve records in a domain that has more than one SOA?".
Kevin, can you explain

I cannot find anything on this?
