[dns-operations] authority outage for ns[1-5].msft.net?

  Trying from various locations, I can't seem to reach these

    ns3.msft.net.           172800  IN      A
    ns1.msft.net.           172800  IN      A
    ns5.msft.net.           172800  IN      A
    ns2.msft.net.           172800  IN      A
    ns4.msft.net.           172800  IN      A

which act as authority for xbox.com, outlook.com, various windows
update domains, and 77K or so domains.  I can see domains still in
caches, some soon to time out.  And traceroutes die at ntwk.msn.net,
so perhaps traffic volume is not the cause.  (Though surely there's a
retry storm under way.)  I note a few posts on forums, just a few
minutes old.  So perhaps this is a recent development.

Is there someone on list who can contact Microsoft?  (Surely they
know about this.)
