I was doing something odd, but I can't remember what it was. w2k dns server
is dangerous though - there is a serious bug where it resets it's own
hostname after a reboot. Since we were using NAT, www.server.com was reset to
10.0.0.2 and once that propagated nobody could see our website... Site was
invisible for a day because of TTLs. Reported the bug to MS twice, never got
a reply. I cursed DNS that day...

Just because it's in the protocol doesn't mean it's a good idea, or necessary.
