The problem I have (and it might be me worrying over nothing) is that
quite a few of the AD records point to Multiple DCs and dnsmasq might
only retain the info for the DC it finds first. if it does this and
next time it is asked for the record, it returns what it knows, but
this DC has gone off line, what happens ?
