Yes, net.mm has a lame delegation:

% check-soa -i net.mm                             
	2001:67c:e0::96: ERROR: 0 answer (9 ms) ERROR: 0 answer (14 ms)
ns0.nic.net.mm. OK: 2014072400 (312 ms)
ns1.nic.net.mm. OK: 2014072400 (309 ms)
ns2.nic.net.mm. OK: 2014072400 (320 ms)

I often see these problems with "deep" TLD (those with registration in
a SLD). TLD managers ask for a secondary hosting and wrongly assume
that it will work for all the zones underneath.
