When I looked at dig output again a moment ago, I saw a March date, 1603xxx (yes, I have a script that subs that in when I move the tables from the source to the root directory, complex combo of RCS, followed by # SED as RCS doesn't provide integer revision numbers and an # rsync to the directory read by the daemon, all on my test machine. If that all checks out, an rsync from the test machine live (rather than source) directory to the live directory on the actual master server).
