But that's not what I'm seeing. If a client sends 100 queries for a non-existent name to its nearest name server, all of them are forwarded on up. What I want is for the name server to cache those NXDOMAIN answers so even if a client is slamming my DNS, my server is not in turn hammering those name servers upstream.
