Experience with the Domain Name System (DNS) has shown that there are
a number of DNS zones that all iterative resolvers and recursive
nameservers should automatically serve, unless configured otherwise.
RFC 4193 specifies that this should occur for D.F.IP6.ARPA.  This
document extends the practice to cover the IN-ADDR.ARPA zones for RFC
1918 address space and other well-known zones with similar
characteristics.  This memo documents an Internet Best Current Practice.

This document is a product of the Domain Name System Operations Working Group of the IETF.

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for 
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
