s;net/com;;

presuming you mean that there should be registered host rr
for all known servers.  otherwise, i suspect the servfails
will get even worse.

sadly, forcing an A RR does not ensure that the server is
in fact serving the zone.  i would not be unhappy if the
registrar or registry would test this occasionally.
