lame name serversThis topic deals with an entry I found in /var/log/messages:
Jan 11 09:14:19 ns named: Lame server on 'desstats.distributed.net' (in 'DISTRIBUTED.NET'?): [22.214.171.124].53 'NS.NAMESERVERS.net': learnt (A=126.96.36.199,NS=188.8.131.52)
In short, it means that your name server was told that that a given name server would contain information about a given domain. But it didn’t. It is, in short, a DNS configuration error with somebody elses domain.
I found a very good explanation of this message by Greg Lehey in the FreeBSD mailing list archives.
