the undiscussed and unannounced change to the default dns config to
cause local transfer of the root and arpa zone files has raised major
discussing in the dns operational community. (see the mailing list
dns-operations at

did i miss the discussion here?

i have spent some hours turning off the default bind and going custom on
a dozen or so machines around the planet.  i am not happy.

what am i missing here?
