Pretty clearly an attack against various authoritative servers. Right
now I'm seeing attacks against the following domains / name servers:

comedc.com      NS f1g1ns1.dnspod.net vip1.zndns.com v1s1.xundns.com
jd176.com       NS ns{1,2}.dnsabc-g.com
x7ok.com        NS safe.qycn.{com,org,net,cn}
bdhope.com      NS ns{1,2}.dnsabc-b.com
yg521.com       NS dns{1,2,3,4,5,6}.iidns.com
56bj56.com      NS ns{1,2}.dnsabc-f.com

This is all detected in AS 2116 - unfortunately we have our share of
customers with open resolvers  / broadband routers with DNS proxies
open towards the WAN side.
