[dns-operations] *.cn A wildcard

Does a *.cn A wildcard exist or not?  From our point of view, there's
one on ns.cernet.net (, but not on the other IPv4

Does anybody know the reason behind this configuration?  It seems to
be a mismatch of the name server software or
configuration. [a-e].dns.cn serve the *.cn/IN/A entry, but do not
expand it.
