[Pdns-users] pdns_recursor question

I'm running off snapshot 563 and I'm still seeing the same behavior.  It

Test queries are:

dig hotmail.com mx
dig mx1.hotmail.com a

Results are always in the same order despite multiple records for each.

Try the highest number, there is an RPM, a .DEB and a tar.gz.
