One of the arpa-Nameservers 18.104.22.168, 2001:500:2::c which is the C-Root-
Server is shown to be not responsive for queries over UDP by DNSviz for a long
time. I haven't found out which flags to set to reproduce this, yet.
dig DNSKEY arpa +tries=1 +dnssec +notcp @2001:500:2::c
simply works for me, and all others I tried, too.
Today there are also similar issues shown up with 22.214.171.124 and 2001:67c:e0::2
for ip6.arpa and 126.96.36.199 for 82.in-addr.arpa, I also can't reproduce them.
So we're possibly not needing link saturation to trigger this. ;-)
But when I understand this bug correctly, the issue is that bind9 is trying
some combinations that simply won't work when trying DNS Protocol legacy in
combination with DNSSEC. This causes unnecessary traffic and log messages but
there are no invalid results cached due to this.
The only case this can turn things worst is in combination with rate limiting
or link saturation.
The only thing that IMHO does'nt really fit into this is, how could the same
message occur e.g. on 09:29:49, 09:29:56, 09:30:18, 09:34:02 and 09:35:39 when
the TTL is 3600, refresh is 1800 and retry 900. From my understanding, the
SOA-RR and its RRSIG should be cached once a successful combination was found,
and there should be no further queries like this for at least 1800 seconds.
Or are there DNS extensions causing this RR to be cached multiple times? I
would expect such for www.google.de IN A or AAAA but not for in-addr.arpa IN
I don't experience any delays when doing my troubleshooting queries, and I'm
seeing the TTL properly decreasing when querying the resolver.
