It doesn't lik me :(
dig +trace cp.hostfactor.co.za

hehe. That's a nice trick though, I noticed after the 3rd attempt that
it goes to our domain registrars nameservers, then segment faults again.
But I'm sure this will do the trick
On another server it worked as expected, and I could see which
nameserver returned the query. My reason for looking for this is that we
run 2 nameservers, one on Linux & 1 on Windows - serving the same
domain, but it's not synced, so I wanted to see what happens if records
change on one server and not the other.
