Sorry if there's another list for this, but Im observing a strange 
problem with a .org domain. Right now when I query dns, I am getting 
only a SOA for '.org' which looks like this:

dig  -t ns somedomain.org

; <<>> DiG 9.8.4-rpz2+rl005.12-P1 <<>> -t ns somedomain.org
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 38840
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

;somedomain.org.        IN    NS

org.            899    IN    SOA    a0.org.afilias-nst.info. 
noc.afilias-nst.info. 2010937269 1800 900 604800 86400

;; Query time: 51 msec
;; SERVER: x.x.x.x#53(y.y.y.y)
;; WHEN: Thu Mar 13 11:00:56 2014
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 99

When I do a +trace, I get a list of the authoratative servers for .org 
but Im manually polled them none of them know the NS for my domain.

The domain doesn't expire till next year according to whois, although it 
does say

Creation Date: 2009-06-22T22:56:30Z
Updated Date: 2014-03-12T15:33:33Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2015-06-22T22:56:30Z

The registered nameservers for it are correct. Wondering if anyone else 
has a clue? The registrar is tucows...
