The Delegation Signer (DS) RR set is stored in a delegating (parent)
zone at each delegation point, and indicates the keys used in the
delegated (child) zone. The main design goal of the DS RR simplify the
operation of secure delegations by eliminating the need to store the
same RR in parent and child, as is done with the NS RR set and the KEY
set in RFC2535.
Secure resolvers need to take an additional step with DS to verify a
child's KEY RR set. Operationally this schema is much simpler as
operation of the two zones at delegation is now decoupled to great

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
