	The cache is only doing what it is designed to do.  Cache
	the responses.  In this case it's caching the authoritative
	part of the response.  Each time it gets a answer it gets
	a new copy of the NS RRset for the zone and it caches it.

	The caching server assumes that correct management practices
	are being followed.  That old server will serve the current
	zone content (which is what should happen for a period) or
	that the old server is not serving the zone.
