Turns out wildfire asks questions of type ANY and *class* ANY as well. This
is defined in RFC 1035, paragraph 3.2.5, which I had sort of not read I
think :-)

Fixed in http://wiki.powerdns.com/projects/trac/changeset/859

To apply, read http://wiki.powerdns.com/projects/trac/wiki/HACKING

Thanks for supplying a tcpdump of the problem, Daniel! That showed the
problem quickly enough.

You can test with dig as well:

dig -t ANY -c ANY ds9a.nl @your-recursor

Will fail on 3.1.2-rc1.

I'm not aware of any other program doing ANY class queries though.

Good luck!
