In my case it's using FreeBSD and Solaris.

The problem might be related to where you do queries from?

Anyway, I tried some other nameservers / "looking glass" sites, like these
- I can't vouch for how good they normally are, but these were ones I
found when searching for "dns looking glass":
I can look up other domains fine, but when looking up "" it
comes back with: connection timed out; no servers could be reached
It times out when I do a "Get DNS Records" query for ""

When testing for yourself, please keep in mind that limited queries seem
to work fine (like, asking for A records, or MX), but doing any-queries
which give everything seems to fail.
