I ran into issues where named told me "too many EDNS failures, disabling".
Then I started looking around and found the edns option. I set it to
yes, and the errors disappeared.

I guess it might have been something else, if edns is enabled by default?

Also, I am still curious why you turned this into an option. Is there
any experience you had where you needed to disable edns?
