<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family:"Verdana",sans-serif">What is the DNS name label length limit? As per RFC 1035, it is 63 characters.  I tested a few DNS names that contains a label that is longer than 63 characters, and found that these records
 were successfully loaded in RPZ zone. I wonder if this is a BIND RPZ feature or bug (it allows DNS name label that is longer than 63 characters)?
