    BRAZIL is Smart to Not Depend on IANA Hand Jobs

    This is 2005 and they are STILL attempting to
    do everything by hand ? like the way Jon Postel did it ?

    In the interests of further explanation and clarification, I'd like to
    add some details of these events from VeriSign's perspective.

    First, to be clear, the VeriSign registry database that generates the
    root zone has supported multiple name server names (i.e., A records)
    with the same IP address for some time.  There was never a technical
    restriction on multiple names with the same IP address during these

    On November 11, 2005, VeriSign performed a root zone edit as requested
    by an IANA Name Server Change template for the .FR ccTLD.  The
    template requested name server NAME changes.  A request to change the
    name DNS.PRINCETON.EDU. was included in the template.  As a result of
    the execution of the change, the name DNS.PRINCETON.EDU did not exist
    and had been replaced by C.EXT.NIC.FR.  Considering the template
    semantics, this was the correct result.  It was not, however, the
    result that IANA desired.  After VeriSign discovered the undesired
    results, DNS.PRINCETON.EDU was immediately re-added to the root zone
    by ADDing a new name server.
