here is a question I've got during a DNS training, and I still do not
have a good answer:
RFC 2308 "DNS NCACHE" defines the last field of the SOA RR as "the TTL of
; << DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu << +noall +answer +multi +cmd soa
example.com ;; global options: +cmd
example.com. 86326 IN SOA dns1.example.com.
hostmaster.example.com. ( 2018013002 ; serial
900 ; refresh (15 minutes)
300 ; retry (5 minutes)
604800 ; expire (1 week)
900 ; minimum (15 minutes)
Why is dig still showing the old description "minimum" about the meaning
of the field?
Is there a good answer? This behaviour of "dig" is irritating users.
