This is a bug in BIND 9.2.2.

If you have a very recent 'dig' from BIND, you can do this:

$ dig +nsid ad.3fr.doubleclick.net  @
and compare with
$ dig ad.3fr.doubleclick.net  @

The 'nsid' option looks just like EDNS-PING on the wire, and causes the same

BIND 9.2.2 has other issues too, so I hope people will upgrade quickly. In
the meantime, I am sure we can do without the incidental ad :-)

I already tried to contact Double Click, but failed so far.
