RDNS... but not what you think

After reading all the horror stories about trying to get RDNS to work, I was surprised to discover that I had passed the Professional level.  Here's the situation.

I have BIND set up on my computer with a reverse zone file for "f." which does correctly respond to:
dig -x 2001:470:1f11:17f::{1 or 2 because those are the only hosts in my routed /64 right now} @2001:470:1f11:17f;

with the hostname nujalik.awpgnt.com.

I have also filled in nujalik.dns6.org. as my RDNS delegation NS1 on tunnelbroker (don't even ask - I think i'm waiting for xname.org's changes to propagate).

Now, "dig -x 2001:470:1f11:17f::1"  (without @2001:470:1f11:17f::1) does not work -- NXDOMAIN -- but apparently it does work for the cert test.  Could it just be that tunnelbroker's changes haven't propagated yet, so only he.net can see the reverse delegation, or am i missing something?


FWIW, here's the output from a non-HE tunnel

That NS record might me the problem:
f. 3600 IN NS nujalik.awpgnt.com.
This address doesn't reslolve to an ip.


yeah i set up awpgnt.com on xname.org yesterday and it hasn't changed anything yet.  dig awpgnt.com returns NXDOMAIN and dig awpgnt.com @ns0.xname.org returns SERVFAIL.  I've changed my ptr record for ...::1 to point to nujalik.dns6.org.

does anyone understand why it gets a PTR record properly when using +trace but shows no answer section otherwise?
