I find nothing in RFC 1035 about that (see "4.1.3. Resource record
format"). Can you provide the actual requirment of the Italian NIC and
the RFC number and section they refer?

We perform several tests in ".fr" and a failure is almost always
followed by the actual reference for instance:
f> Server doesn't listen/answer on port 53 for TCP protocol
 | Ref: IETF RFC1035 (p.32 4.2. Transport)
=> dns-eu1.powerdns.net./
