Well, maybe. When we performed the migration from the old server, rather than
rename the new box, we gave it a CNAME of the old box. Consider the following:

news at newstransit:~/log$ uname -a
SunOS newstransit 5.8 Generic_108528-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250
news at newstransit:~/log$

news at newstransit:~/log$ nslookup blanket
Server:  mbunix.mitre.org

Name:    newstransit.mitre.org
Aliases:  blanket.mitre.org

news at newstransit:~/log$

"Blanket" was the hostname of the old box. Could it be possible that our upstream
peers would be rejecting all of our posts based upon this?
