This is for those using Bind as resolvers and NOT forwarding queries to 
some DNS down the line.

pls run

dig NS yucdedag . cn

(remove spaces in domain name)

If using Bimd for recursing it should timeout.

If you're using pdns-recursor your should be able to resolve.
If you're using Bind and some BSD you should be able to resolve

I have been able to reproduce on Centos 5.x / latest Ubuntu

trying to find out if other distros do it as well, if its a one off, or 
what the heck is going on.

Any Comments/Feedback appreciated.
