There are probably several different instances for each authoritative
server of grantee.fema.gov, and they behave differently. Here, seen by
the RIPE Atlas probes, you can se that some probes can get a DNSKEY
(when using the DO bit) and some cannot (timeout):

% blaeu-resolve -4 -r 100 --nameserver ns-dc2gtm1.dhs.gov. --type DNSKEY --dnssec grantee.fema.gov.
Nameserver ns-dc2gtm1.dhs.gov.

Probably because they do to different instances of ns-dc2gtm1.dhs.gov.
