The best web page I could find was http://www.madboa.com/geek/dig/, but 
it doesn't go into any detail about the header flags.  Maybe the "DNS & 
BIND" book has a discussion of it, I don't recall and don't have it 

Failing that, check RFC 1035 section 4.1.1, which describes the DNS 
header.  Dig's output is a straightforward mapping of that.
