Technical Summary Experience with the Domain Name System (DNS) has shown that there are a number of DNS zones 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. Working Group Summary The working group strong but not unanimous consensus. Discussion arose around how exactly to seed the IANA registry that defines the list of zones to locally serve. Document Quality There are name server implementations that already use the feature described in this document. Personnel Peter Koch is shepherd for this document.
