Google DNS and OpenDNS are meant to be used by end-users, who don't need
the extra information in the authority section. The authority section is
only needed by recursive resolvers.

I actually doubt if the difference in response from Google/OpenDNS is
responsible for resolution failures.

It would be far more helpful if you can actually provide your domain
name. Then someone can have a look and see if there's any obvious
configuration issue. Without knowing the actual domain name, one can
only guess about possible problems.
