Description Need Real Name 2002-07-31 15:40:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)

Description of problem:
When the named daemon is setup as a full DNS server, responding on behalf of 
clients, named always responds with 'Server Failed' when looking 
up 'wwws.sun.com'.  As soon as the config is changed so named just forwards to 
ISP DNS servers, it finds the name just fine.  This happens no matter what 
client I use (MS Win nslookup, dig from the box itself).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup named with default root servers.
2. Run dig and try to lookup 'wwws.sun.com'

Actual Results:  client program responds with 'Server Failed', not sure what 
error that corresponds to in DNS protocol.

Expected Results:  client program should display the DNS entry

Additional info:

Network sniffs can be attached if needed.  Configs can be attached, but I 
think there's nothing special there.  Logs show nothing... did not try logs at 
debug level.

Not reproducable on RedHat 7.3 with same bind version.
During the test used to create attachments, sever responded 'timed out' many 
times, then eventually responded 'server failed' on last query.
