Cdc.gov not resolving

cdc.gov isn’t resolving?

nslookup www.cdc.gov
;; Got SERVFAIL reply from 1.1.1.1, trying next server
;; Got SERVFAIL reply from 1.0.0.1, trying next server
Server:		2606:4700:4700::1111

** server can't find www.cdc.gov: SERVFAIL

@mvavrusa was checking on this a while back. Maybe he’s found out what the problem was/is.

There’s a subset of nameservers for akam.cdc.gov that doesn’t return keys https://dnsviz.net/d/www.cdc.gov/dnssec/ so if you’re unlucky it’s going to fail. I added another workaround so it should be better.

Either I was unlucky or that worked. @mvavrusa looks good now on my end, thanks!

I had to disable DNSSEC on my DNS server to visit.

Agreed, having issues reaching cdc.gov this morning. Looks like culprit is as posted above. Maybe some more yet to add?
