Abstract

   The BULK DNS resource record type defines a method of pattern based
   creation of DNS resource records to be used in place of NXDOMAIN
   errors which would normally be returned.  These records are currently
   restricted to registered DNS resource record types A, AAAA, PTR and
   CNAME.  The key benefit of the BULK resource record type is the
   simplification of maintaining "generic" record assignments which
   would otherwise be too many to manage or require scripts or
   proprietary methods as bind's $GENERATE.
   
   This document updates RFCs 2308, 4033, 4034 and 4035.
