SRV Request to DNS

Hi all,

I had a query

Let us say we are having a FQDN and we need to Resolve it. It goes through the procedure of determining the IP and Port using NAPTR/SRV/A query mechanisms

The question I have is if I have a FQDN with a Port Number already determined, will it go through the Procedure of NAPTR/SRV/A query (or) simply do a A query (or) Is this left to the client to apply the Logic?
