Our 2 main dns servers have been upgraded to nw 6.5 sp1 and for the most
part things work except sometimes a change to a dns entry will never make it
to one of the dns servers. Even stoping and restarting named won't get it
in , you have to delete the domain.txt file from the sys:\etc\dns to force
it to pick up the change. Any suggestions on that ?

The next one is a mx resolution for some domains. For example clarion.org
from ns.utah.edu shows:

> server ns.utah.edu

Default Server: ns.utah.edu
Address: 128.110.124.120

> set type=mx
> clarion.org

Server: ns.utah.edu
Address: 128.110.124.120

It never resolves each of the mx entries to the ip number. This happens on
other sites also...
