[Collisions] Weird dest IP addr

In the 2008 data for a and j root, I'm seeing a lot of queries destined for:


Which isn't the official root server address of anything.


For example:


17.333638.pcap.gz 2008-03-19 09:50:41.683549 IP > 53758 A? xpone.home. (28)


My current logic throws that row out (throws out any rows that aren't
destined for a valid root server IP).


Is there some historical reason why queries to this address in 2008 might be
considered valid?


Thank you,
