That mitigates the issue, but fails to deal with the root cause.

One has to wonder - if a network is spewing enough broken DNS packets that it's
noticable, and it's not getting fixed, what *else* is wrong with the network.
Remember - every packet you see is a timeout happening back at the
misconfigured site.

It's like a car with one headlight out - yes, it still works, but whenever I see
one on the road, I wonder what ELSE is marginal (like brake pads)....
