Quoting Rod Keys on Saturday October 11, 2008:
| 
| This tool has been implemented quickly to assist name server operators.
| It may have problems as it has not been thoroughly tested, so you should
| also perform your own tests and use this only as a guide. We appreciate
| any comments or bug reports on this tool ? please drop a note to
| iana&#167;iana.org. Port entropy results provided by DNS-OARC.Kim,
| Read the notes!

I know what the notes say, I wrote the tool. But in case there was
any doubt it can easily be verified independently that one of the
authorities provides recursive name service:
