Nameresovle.com's servers are returning answers that can be seen
as a cache poisioning attempt. They are NOT authorative for
".hosting" but have been configured as if they are. This is a big
NO NO. You don't configure youself as authoritative for a zone
that has not been delegated to you and in particular you don't
configure yourself as authoritative for "." or a TLD.
Windows 2008 is quite correct in rejecting this answer. Named would
as well except for the number of DNS hosters that do this sort of
garbage. Named just sees the CNAME and stops processing the message
