And I thought it was quite obvious :-). The first number after
NSTATS is the current time, the second number is the boot time.
The next entries are the standard resource records (see the bind
manual in /usr/doc/net/bind). The XSTATS line also contains the
current time and the boot time. The entries following the time
values are [from ns_stats.c]:

   RQ          -     sent us a query
   RR          -     sent us an answer
   RIQ         -     sent us an inverse query
   RNXD        -     sent us a negative response
   RFwdQ       -     sent us a query we had to fwd
   RFwdR       -     sent us a response we had to fwd
   RDupQ       -     sent us a retry
   RDupR       -     sent us an extra answer
   RFail       -     sent us a SERVFAIL
   RFErr       -     sent us a FORMERR
   RErr        -     sent us some other error
   RTCP        -     sent us a query using TCP
   RAXFR       -     sent us an AXFR
   RLame       -     sent us a lame delegation
   ROpts       -     sent us some IP options
   SSysQ       -     sent them a sysquery
   SAns        -     sent them an answer
   SFwdQ       -     fwdd a query to them
   SFwdR       -     fwdd a response to them
   SDupQ       -     sent them a retry
   SFail       -     sent them a SERVFAIL
   SFErr       -     sent them a FORMERR
   SErr        -     sent failed (in sendto)
   RNotNsQ     -     received from remote port != ns_port
   SNaAns      -     sent them a non autoritative answer
   SNXD        -     sent them a negative response

I'll add something like this to /usr/doc/net/bind.
