DNSSEC responses for im TLD broken

dig ds im @ +dnssec should return proof of nonexistence of DS record for the im TLD. Instead it returns something else that I’m having trouble deciphering, but that looks like an unrelated proof of nxdomain for something else. This makes the entire im TLD inaccessible using as upstream nameserver if one is performing DNSSEC validation (everything is ServFail).

Hi! Sorry about the issues, can you post a dig response? (And some troubleshooting info as per Have problems with *Read Me First* - #3)

At the moment it’s not happening anymore; I see the correct result with the NSEC record for “im.” proving nonexistence of DS record. I closed the terminal with the bad response assuming it would be reproducible, so I don’t have my original, but I got a copy from a Libera #dns user who’d confirmed the problem with me before posting this report. Here it is:

$ dig +dnssec im ds @one.one.one.one

Ok no problem, I can take a look. Can you post dig +short CHAOS TXT id.server @ response to see which PoP are you connected to?

For me, “IAD”. I’m not sure if that’s the same as for the source of the above dig log, but I experienced the problem from here as well.

This was a problem with a partial rollout of a more aggressive root caching that we didn’t catch in tests, again sorry about the issues!

Thanks for looking into it and taking the time to give an explanation. That makes me comfortable switching back to as my upstream again for now.
