The IESG has received a request from the Domain Name System Operations WG
(dnsop) to consider the following document: - 'A Common Operational Problem
in DNS Servers - Failure To Communicate.'
  <draft-ietf-dnsop-no-response-issue-14.txt> as Best Current Practice

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
last-call@ietf.org mailing lists by 2019-12-19. Exceptionally, comments may
be sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning
of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   The DNS is a query / response protocol.  Failing to respond to
   queries, or responding incorrectly, causes both immediate operational
   problems and long term problems with protocol development.

   This document identifies a number of common kinds of queries to which
   some servers either fail to respond or else respond incorrectly.
   This document also suggests procedures for zone operators to apply to
   identify and remediate the problem.

   The document does not look at the DNS data itself, just the structure
   of the responses.
