Let me demonstrate a bit of pedantism: the correct sentence is rather
"they might not all fit in a traditional DNS UDP packet (512
bytes)". The limit is not UDP's fault. And even with DNS, EDNS0 allows
more than 512 bytes and is now an old technology.

Not with EDNS0 (which is enabled by default on BIND).
