It would be good to have the conversation here on the list instead.

First: we were probably sloppy in the use of the word "answer". In many 
cases, that should be "response".

The response is the entire DNS message that is sent in reply to a 
question.

However, in your GitHub comment, you suggest that an "answer" is both 
the contents  of the Answer section *and* the contents of the Authority 
section. Why would the contents of the Authority section be considered 
an answer?
