[dns-operations] SprintPCS refusing queries for ripe.net?

So I was thinking about registering to get a RIPE ATLAS probe, and went to do some further reading while mobile, connected over EVDO. Page wouldn't load, waitasec, DNS failure? Really? Yup:
> ripe.netServer:  nsvip.akronohar05.spcsdns.netAddress:*** nsvip.akronohar05.spcsdns.net can't find ripe.net: Query refused
Okay, obvious workaround, try or for a minute, but nope, it looks like Sprint's intercepting those. Same failure. But when I fire up my VPN and bring my traffic out another provider, I can resolve it:
> ripe.net  []Address: answer:Name:    ripe.netAddresses:  2001:67c:2e8:22::c100:68b
Curiously, this is the only name I've found myself unable to resolve while on Sprint. It seems a quizzical omission, to say the least.
