Hi Hongwei,

The usual example for this is a host name-to-address translation attempt (using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS (Domain Name Server). An MX record is returned but no A record-indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable."

It's fine according to my testing using DNS tools. Can you narrow it
down to a packet in the network trace? 

I only see one DNS request for blu.bludom.tridgell.net in the network
trace (framls 17). The answer in frame 18 looks fine. 

hmm, frame 509 looks suspicious. The additional records returned from
a SRV lookup of
include a A record of, which shouldn't be there, as well as
the correct IPv6 address. I'll see if I can fix that and retry.

Would that match the error you are seeing?

Cheers, Tridge
