Is there really an appreciable amount of traffic being caused by this?

Anyway, only your registrar can delete host records.  If Network Solutions is
your registrar, then they can do it.  If they refuse (due to the host being
in use), then your best bet might be to change it to another address, 
possibly one you've null routed.
