The second one, doesnotexist.monitor.itconsult.net., does not appear to be
delegated from its parent. That's why you're getting NXDOMAIN - that
response is coming from the parent zone: itconsult.net.
>> Query: doesnotexist.monitor.itconsult.net. A IN at zone itconsult.net.
>> Send to zone itconsult.net. at address 220.127.116.11
ERROR: NXDOMAIN: doesnotexist.monitor.itconsult.net. not found
