Nope. You query a resolver, and it returns the best answer that it
knows. Resolvers only do what you tell them to do.

In order to use the New.net names, you just need to query a resolver that
knows about them. The '.com/.net/.org' block has a distinct advantage,
since most resolvers find out about their servers by default.
