[dns-operations] Did ms.us expire?

Solved (and learned something new): More checking shows that .ms.us doesn’t have its own name servers.  dig +trace for something in the .k12.ms.us domain shows .us name servers return answers for .k12.ms.us, which then resolve to the specific host.  This is true for other state domains, too.
