A registrar inadvertently put the 2day.com
zone on REGISTRAR HOLD, with
the unpleasant result of removing it from the root zone.
This makes hosts in the zone 2day.com
Surely any domain hosted by 2day would also be unresolvable as the
delegation for those zones would be by nameserver name and as I remember it
all of 2day's name servers are in the 2day.com
In the meantime, it would be helpful if you could add
a stub to your
name servers, so that requests for things in the 2day.com
still resolved appropriately until the root servers catch up.
One assumes that many nameservers will cache that bad name lookup and fixing
the root servers won't fix the problem immediately. Do you have an estimate
of how long before this problem fixes itself.
Would adding the stub to the servers that are authorititive for .co.nz
bypass the problem for .co.nz zones (avoid a referal to the root servers).
