His DNS is indeed broken. The squish.net/dnscheck dns checker says
(among other things):

16.2% of queries will end in failure at 63.102.200.2 (NS1.CENTRALINFO.NET) -
  no such domain

9.5% of queries will end in failure at too many nested queries

12.7% of queries will end in failure at 134.48.1.31 (spool.mu.edu) -
  returned SERVFAIL code

It doesn't help that the whole of "eu.org" is delegated to (among
other things) "relay-1.ftel.co.uk", which is badly broken.
