I have a query here,
I have named.conf configured But I do not have zone file configured for a domain name as "e164.ld" 
I am sending out a query asdig @<DNS Server IP> NAPTR
; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6 <<>>  NAPTR;; global options: +cmd;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
I am receiving  a Connection TimeOut message
Should not i be receiving a NXDOMAIN response from DNS Server? 
What are the scenarios, I will be receiving a Timeout, or a NXDOMAIN, or a REFUSED from DNS Server
I have Installed BIND on RHEL system! Would the reposnes be different in different servers like Linux, Solaris, CENTOS?
