[Pdns-users] NSEC RR - pdns 2.9.22

Hi folks,

Regarding the pdns documentation it should be possible to use the NSEC 
RR since version 2.9.21. Therefore, I tried to create a NSEC RR with the 
value "sub.test.de. A NS SOA". Unfortunately, I get always a SERVFAIL if 
I try to 'dig' the domain test.de on my nameserver.

The log file of the pdns server shows the following problem:
"Exception building answer packet (Unknown record was stored 
incorrectly, need 3 fields, got 4: sub.test.de. A NS SOA) sending out 

As far as I know "sub.test.de." should be interpreted as first field 
(next domain name) and "A NS SOA" as second field (list of types).

The questions which are resulting:
What would be the third field?
Why is every RR in the "list of types" interpreted as separate field?
What would be the correct configuration?

If you need further information, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance.
