Why don't you try to be helpful instead of telling everybody they are

I think most people on the list *knows* that "dig" and "nslookup" are
just clients - but we also know that sending a query can generate useful
information in both the server log and the command line.

My first question was:
"What is the best way to debug a SERVFAIL problem?"
You did not answer it, and with the use of dig and reading the server
logs I fixed it myself.
