Could you run "tcpdump -s 1600 -i any -w for-bert port 53" on your PowerDNS
2.9.20 server while you query it for mail.acegroup.cc, and mail me the
for-bert file separately (privately)?

Also, if possible, could you run the recursor your 2.9.20 server points to
in --verbose --trace mode while you query, and send me the logs?

It doesn't appear there is anything obviously wrong with your setup.

Can you double double double check you are pointing both your auth servers
at the 3.1.2 version?
