DNS Strangeness Followup

A few days ago I mentioned I was having some DNS issues. I’m pretty sure they are resolved as the last few days I haven’t seen anything odd. It seems the primary nameserver did not bump the SOA when it updated. As a result one of the other DNS servers was out of sync. Why […]
