Hmm. I'm not disputing you're correct in this assessment, but it's
curious that nsmon has been running like this for a week or so and only
today did these go critical at the same time the nameserver in question
is returning non-authoritive answers for those hosts.

The man page does seem to imply you are correct though. I wonder why
they only went critical today.

Would anyone else find the way I thought it was supposed to work more
