That zone's pretty messed up. ns1 and always return
REFUSED for, but they return a delegation for to, which doesn't
exist. So named ends up treating it as a lame delegation.  I would suggest
contacting Charter Communications about this, they need to fix the zone.

"qname-minimization relaxed" really ought to be able to work around this,
though, and I thank you for bringing it up. You can file a bug report at if you wish.
