A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.


	Title		: Suppressing DNS queries to the names under reserved 
                          top level domains
	Author(s)	: L. Esibov, S. Kwan

A set of top level domains was recently reserved for testing and
documentation purposes. Currently, there is work in progress to reserve
a top level domain to be used only in private networks. It is inevitable
that some DNS queries for the names under these domains will leak to the
Internet. To prevent the load of such ineffectual queries on the root
servers, special configuration of the public DNS servers is recommended
in this document

Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail.

Send a message to:

In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-esibov-dnsop-suppress-queries-00.txt".
	
NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
		
		
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
Internet-Draft.
