|Allow Recursive Queries||pass||OK. Domain name servers are not allowing recursive queries. On all name servers which acts as caching name servers recursive queries should be restricted to local networks. Having open DNS servers can lead to abuses such as cache poisoning and DOS (denial of service) attacks. Cache poisoning attacks allows under certain conditions to redirect legitimate web traffic, email and other traffic to malicious hosts compromising security.|
|Check Name Servers Count||pass||OK. Domain has 2 name servers. Recommended number, between 2 and 7 name servers (RFC 2182 recommends to have at least 3 authoritative name servers for domains).|

|Check for Lame Name servers||pass||OK. No lame name servers found. All of your name servers are configured to be either master or slave for your domain.|

RFC 1034, section 3.6.2 says if a name appears in the right-hand side of RR (Resource Record) it should not appear in the left-hand name of CNAME RR, thus CNAME records should not be used with NS and MX records. Despite this restrictions, there are many working configuration using CNAME with NS and MX records.|
|Allow TCP connections||pass||OK. All name servers are allowing TCP connections. When response to a DNS query exceeds 512 bytes, TCP is negotiated and used, all name servers should allow TCP connections (port 53).|
|Name Servers on Separate Networks||warn||WARNING:

|Check SOA Record||info||
Domain SOA Record:

|SOA Refresh||pass||OK. Refresh interval is 28800. Recommended values [1200 .. 43200] (20 min ... 12 hours). Refresh field from SOA record determines how quickly zone changes are propagated from master to slave.|
|SOA Retry||pass||OK. Retry interval is 7200. Recommended values [120 .. 7200] (2 minutes .. 2 hours). Retry field from SOA record defines how often slave should retry contacting master if connection to master failed during refresh.|
|SOA Expire||warn||WARNING: Expire interval is 3600000. Recommended values [604800 .. 1209600] (1 week ... 2 weeks). Expiry defines zone expiration time in seconds after which slave must re-validate zone file, if contacting master fails then slave will stop responding to any queries.|
