If they're attacking the authoritative DNS servers for 5kkx.com, just reflecting gives them indirection and presumably makes traceback harder for 5kkx.com (at least, in the minds of the attackers).

Or maybe they're trying to game 5kkx.com into blocking requests from the recursive servers in question, for some reason.
