This document updates RFC 7450, "Automatic Multicast Tunneling" (or
AMT), by modifying the relay discovery process.  A new DNS resource
record named AMTRELAY is defined for publishing AMT relays for
source-specific multicast channels.  The reverse IP DNS zone for a
multicast sender's IP address is configured to use AMTRELAY resource
records to advertise a set of AMT relays that can receive and forward
multicast traffic from that sender over an AMT tunnel.  Other
extensions and clarifications to the relay discovery process are also
