The resolver?

On MirBSD:
Looking up
Unable to locate remote host
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile
1|address@hidden:~ $ host -v
Query about for record types A

So I suppose the usage of underscores is not really allowed,
which is what Stef already told us about.

Oh yeah, I still have djbdns:

address@hidden:~ $ dnsip

I guess we should be looking that up in the RFCs, and then
possibly file a bug against the BSD libcs' resolvers, and
maybe check with the BIND people (at least for BIND 4, which
is said to have the same resolver - I don't use BIND, so I
don't know). Lynx' side is fine, as I saw on Win2k here.
