 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.
