A quick survey of some caching servers in my neighborhood reveals that
some of them return "old/correct" A RRs for panix.com at this time. 
Following the DNS delegation chain from the root name servers provides
"new/hijacked" answers at this time. So I assume some operators of caching 
servers now choose to provide data that is inconsistent with the 
authoritative data in the DNS tree. So depending on where you ask, your
answer may vary.
