I’ve never had success with F5 and DNS packet handling properly going all the way back to Nov 1998 timeframe. One of their engineers was troubleshooting it in our offices of my employer at the time and ended up upset and saying “why doesn’t this work” when it was broken vs being able to properly triage it.
I’m expecting someone from F5 to email me because at the time when I posted about the issue on NANOG they were aggressive in trying to defend a public view of their product and legitimate technical problems.
