It seems to do a regular lookup, plus maybe an ANY

But I've also noticed that it seems to find  I often put a ' IN A' into zones and a couple I checked it found them, even though it shouldn't have by "normal" means

it also found a 'blog' record I had on one of my domains ...

so, it must be looking for some specific records in addition to general lookups.
