One DNS provider (name.com), in addition to returning ptrs to ad sites on missing domain names, is ALSO returning completely invalid pointers to IPv6 addresses for the same:
d@cruithne:~$ host no.such.subdomain.bufferbloat.net
no.such.subdomain.bufferbloat.net has address 220.127.116.11
no.such.subdomain.bufferbloat.net has IPv6 address 1400:0:bce5:95ab:1e00:0:2800:0
I've been meaning to discuss this with them once I can summon the needed diplomacy and tact. So far, no luck.
Be careful what you wish for.
