Then that's a broken implementation.

The binding spec hasn't change in this regard since the first last-call 
in 2000.

No. It's a *feature* that they are. This may mean that the model used by 
BIND isn't applicable to a specific problem, and that's fine. For 
instance, there are also "redirect references" (separate protocol). 
Historically, there was also talk about "direct reference resources" but 
as far as I can tell from the mailing list archives, nobody was 
interested in pursueing that.
