RFC 2308, "Negative Caching of DNS Queries (DNS NCACHE)", March 1998

Source of RFC: dnsind (int)

Errata ID: 4983
Status: Reported
Type: Editorial
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Reported By: Stéphane Bortzmeyer
Date Reported: 2017-03-28

Section 1 says:

   "QNAME" - the name in the query section of an answer, or where this
   resolves to a CNAME, or CNAME chain, the data field of the last

It should say:

   "QNAME" - the name in the query section (RFC 1034, section 3.7.1).


RFC 2308 is the only RFC that defines QNAME this way. Original definition in RFC 1034 is clear, and is used by all other RFC since. (This point was raised during the development of RFC 8020, and is now discussed in the context of draft-ietf-dnsop-terminology-bis)
