    No, that's not always OK, because -f option of fpdns relies on the 
version.bind record, which i explained on my previous message that 
sometimes cant be queries and other times can fake some false version id.

fpdns -f    and the   dig command i gave you queries exactly the same thing.

none of those (which are in fact the sam thing) are 100% reliable for 
identifying remote dns server versions
