I still don't see the point of leaving a permanent record of some other
company's name in a post like this - that's all this was about, not
about a misguided sense of security through obscurity.

Thanks, though, you've answered my question - as the dig output was from
the authoritative DNS then clearly there is something broken as I am
very clear I have never entered that broadcast address.

I wasn't asking for a fix, merely guidance as to whether this was a
standard feature.
