[Pdns-users] Field order "wrong", SOA not being the first.

I am experiencing some problems with PowerDNS.

The problem is that ANY query does not return fileds in a "good" order, 
starting with SOA and so. Italian authority does not accept DNS servers 
with this behavior (and i believe this is not RFC compliant).

The order seems to be changing every 20 seconds or so (caching, I 
think). The order in which the fields are SELECT'ed from MySQL DB is 
correct, but it seems that PowerDNS is "rearranging" them.

Is there a way to fix it? It's a problem or something misconfigured, or 
is this the normal behavior of PowerDNS?

I am using a NATIVE record

Thanks in advance.
