Abstract

   The Domain Name System (DNS) was designed to return matching records
   efficiently for queries for data that is relatively static.  When
   those records change frequently, DNS is still efficient at returning
   the updated results when polled.  But there exists no mechanism
   for a client to be asynchronously notified when these changes occur.
   This document defines a mechanism for a client to be notified
   of such changes to DNS records, called DNS Push Notifications.
