As far as I remember from the discussion about using DNAME in the Coral
Cache setup (http://www.coralcdn.org), several stub resolvers including
e.g. Windows XP SP2 have severe problems with answers that contain
DNAMEs. Has anyone of you using DNAME tried Windows XP?

For the records, I've added an empty ip6.int zone to the resolvers of
several networks I'm responsible for. I thought about adding a wildcard
PTR record that says something like
"update-your-resolver-to-query-ip6.arpa.domain", but since many networks
lack proper reverses and most stacks fallback from ip6.arpa to ip6.int
it appears way to often.
