FWIW, with ofda.gov even 1410 is not enough, EDNS buffer sizes less than
1555 (requiring working fragmentation) elicit a TC=1 response, but TCP
is not available.


    dig +bufsize=1554 +dnssec +norecur @$ip -t tlsa _25._tcp.dc4vasmtp01.ofda.gov


    dig +bufsize=1555 +dnssec +norecur @$ip -t tlsa _25._tcp.dc4vasmtp01.ofda.gov
