RE: How common is lack of DNS server diversity?
Then, how do you intelligently talk about the other entities I bring up? BTW, I didn't invent some of this. The semantic need exists and because of resistance to further definition, folks are making their own semantics to fill the vacume. You really ought to look at what MSFT uses for DDNS semantics, it is a nightmare. The reason that they came up with their own, is because there were no pre-existing semantics that would cover the concepts. MHSC, ORSC, and I suspect uDNS, had to do the same thing. One resultant is, that we have conflicting semantics. ref: what I said about routing around the problem. Denial is not a river in Egypt and won't make the problem go away. > -----Original Message----- > From: Havard.Eidnes@runit.sintef.no > [mailto:Havard.Eidnes@runit.sintef.no] > Sent: Saturday, January 27, 2001 2:29 PM > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Cc: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; > email@example.com > Subject: Re: How common is lack of DNS server diversity? > > > > > <Root server> ::= Any DNS server that has final authority for a > > <domain tier/level>; > > That's what's commonly referred to as an "authoritative name > server" for the zone in question. > > I'll side with Bill M: a "root DNS name server" serves the root > zone, aka.
