My personal opinion, though it doesn't account for much, is that they were
testing out the new ways one can serve DNS from a MS-SQL database. Then
again, they could just be smart and be paranoid. If I had a private network
where security was required to be high, I'd have pulled the plug until the
storm was over. Why take chances?
