What should the TTL be set for these records? I definitely not a dns
guru but I think I pretty much understand what this will do.... Also, I
noticed the absence of servers j-m. When I created the zone, the A records
for all servers were there automatically, including j-m. I deleted them to
conform to your instructions... BTW, I noticed the problem again just as I
was getting ready to create this zone. It's not severe (yet) but I'm sure
worried. I guess I'll have to wait for the root servers to resolve
themselves before this fix will work?
