DNS: Dig returns different responses...

Hey everyone,
Okay, so I've been having some fun with the dig command, and wanted to dig my old school. Two questions came up from this. So I:
dig @ +recurse njcu.edu ANY

and the result is about 8 records, including the SOA record. One of them is this weird TXT record, and the other is an MX and A record. The rest are auth servers which I'm assuming are DNS.

Now I know for a fact we have many subdomains..gothicnet.njcu.edu... web.njcu.edu.... etc.. why aren't those listed here? They all have IP's that are on the same IP range as the main site, njcu.edu. I can dig them individually, but why can't if I use the +recurse option see every subdomain under njcu.edu?

My other question is when I do a
 dig +recurse njcu.edu ANY

This uses the DNS my ISP provides instead of google's What I've noticed is when I do this...I only get back like half of the results, I got before, but then I also get back in the "additional Section" of the response, AAAA records which I didn't get before. And if I do this same query again immediately after, I get even less results. Why is this? Shouldn't each query give you the same exact response no matter where you get it from?

Thanks guys

sip-dig - Resolve SIP URIs. This is an example program for sresolv library in synchronous mode. Author: Pekka Pessi <Pekka.Pessi@nokia.com> Date: Original Created: Tue Jul 16 18:50:14 2002 ppessi Synopsis sip-dig [OPTIONS] uri... Description The sip-dig utility resolves SIP URIs as described in RFC 3263. It queries NAPTR, SRV and A/AAAA records and prints out the resulting transport addresses. The default transports are: UDP, TCP, SCTP, TLS and TLS-SCTP. The SIPS URIs are resolved using only TLS transports, TLS and TLS-SCTP. If not otherwise indicated by NAPTR or SRV records, the sip-dig uses UDP and TCP as transports for SIP and TLS for SIPS URIs. The results are printed intended, with a preference followed by weight, then protocol name, port number and IP address in numeric format. Command Line Options The sip-dig utility accepts following command line options: -p protoname Use named transport protocol. The protoname can be either well-known, e.g., 'udp', or it can specify NAPTR service and SRV identifier, e.g., 'tls-udp/SIPS+D2U/_sips._udp.'. --udp Use UDP transport protocol. --tcp Use TCP transport protocol. --tls Use TLS over TCP transport protocol. --sctp Use SCTP transport protocol. --tls-sctp Use TLS over SCTP transport protocol. --no-sctp Ignore SCTP or TLS-SCTP records in the list of default transports. This option has no effect if transport protocols has been explicitly listed. -4 Query IP4 addresses (A records) -6 Query IP6 addresses (AAAA records). -v Be verbatim. Return Codes 0when successful (a 2XX-series response is received) 1when unsuccessful (a 3XX..6XX-series response is received) 2initialization failure Examples Resolve sip:openlaboratory.net, prefer TLS over TCP, TCP over UDP: $ sip-dig --tls --tcp --udp sip:openlaboratory.net 1 0.333 tls 5061 2 0.333 tcp 5060 3 0.333 udp 5060 Resolve sips:example.net with TLS over SCTP (TLS-SCTP) and TLS: $ sip-dig -p tls-sctp --tls sips:example.net 1 0.500 tls-udp 5061 2 0.500 tls 5061 Environment #SRESOLV_DEBUG, SRESOLV_CONF Reporting Bugs Report bugs to <sofia-sip-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>.
