[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: 184.108.40.206*** nsvip.akronohar05.spcsdns.net can't find ripe.net: Query refused
Okay, obvious workaround, try 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168 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 22.214.171.124Server: [126.96.36.199]Address: 188.8.131.52Non-authoritative answer:Name: ripe.netAddresses: 2001:67c:2e8:22::c100:68b 184.108.40.206
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.
