An ANY query will typically return only what's already in the cache.
So if you ask for MX records first and then query the same caching
resolver for ANY it won't return, say, any TXT records that may be
present at the authoritative nameserver.
This could be implementation dependent, but Comcast's isn't wrong, and
you should not rely on ANY queries returning full data. This has been
hashed out to tears in the past, for example when qm**l used to do
these queries in an attempt to optimise DNS query volumes and RTT.
