For example, new bind9 do not understand such kind of records:

use.exit.to.quit.nslookup.-.-       A       192.168.2.2     
quit    IN      CNAME   use.exit.to.quit.nslookup.-.-

Sep 24 22:20:56 ns named[52308]: toxa.lan:22:
use.exit.to.quit.nslookup.-.-.toxa.lan: bad owner name (check-names)
Sep 24 22:20:56 ns /kernel: Sep 24 22:20:56 ns named[52308]:
toxa.lan:22: use.exit.to.quit.nslookup.-.-.toxa.lan: bad owner name
(check-names)
Sep 24 22:20:56 ns named[52308]: zone toxa.lan/IN: loading master file
toxa.lan: bad owner name (check-names)
Sep 24 22:20:56 ns /kernel: Sep 24 22:20:56 ns named[52308]: zone
toxa.lan/IN: loading master file toxa.lan: bad owner name (check-names)


Removing "-" works ok:

use.exit.to.quit.nslookup       A       192.168.2.2     
quit    IN      CNAME   use.exit.to.quit.nslookup


Old bind was not so strict about it :-)
