compression pointers which point to other compression
pointers. [RT #16427]
2117. [bug] DNSSEC fixes: named could fail to cache NSEC records
which could lead to validation failures. named didn't
handle negative DS responses that were in the process
of being validated. Check CNAME bit before accepting
NODATA proof. To be able to ignore a child NSEC there
must be SOA (and NS) set in the bitmap. [RT #16399]
