I'm trying to help my mother with an email server/MX record issue and
have run across a question i've had for a while, i just never really
needed an answer until now.
If you run nslookup as such, against a domain, without a host name
You will receive a response. This does not work for all domains
however. What type of record is this response (domain queries lacking a
specific host name) and how do i set up something like this in bind?
Of course i would get an MX record if i set type=mx and queried just a
domain, but i'm talking about domain only queries with no specific type set.
FYI: Her actual problem is getting her email server (nbww.com) to send
mail to pjgeng.org, but the DNS for pjgeng.org is screwed (no MX record).
