   Providing Minimal-Sized Responses to DNS Queries That Have QTYPE=ANY

Abstract

   The Domain Name System (DNS) specifies a query type (QTYPE) "ANY".    The operator of an authoritative DNS server might choose not to    respond to such queries for reasons of local policy, motivated by    security, performance, or other reasons.

   The DNS specification does not include specific guidance for the    behavior of DNS servers or clients in this situation.  This document    aims to provide such guidance.

   This document updates RFCs 1034 and 1035.
