Thanks for that hint. As stated in RFC 1035 "If an entry for an RR
begins with a blank, then the RR is assumed to be owned by the last
stated owner". When there are only blanks, it's somehow "substitute with
the domain name", so i "bricked" the entry with the dmarc TXT record.
Only an old documentation for Bind on IRIX says "A blank or tab
character in the name field denotes the current domain."
