Actually that's precisely how I discovered it. I added
allow queries and was trying to figure out why I was
denying so many queries per second.

Others should take a look and see if this is really
widespread. I'm getting it from a whole *bunch* of
different ip's. 

I wish I could do the joke, but I have too many real
zones that I primary and secondary so I can't really
load a phony root.db.

I agree with your analysis. It seems like a really
stupid thing to do, which is why I am having trouble
understanding why so many people are querying me
like that. It just doesn't make sense.
