If any part of the answer is answered from cache or a forward- or
root-server, clear the bit, obviously. But if everything comes from
a stub-zone, there's no reason not to set AA, and there's even no
real reason to cache, is there? I would appreciate not having to
wait for min-TTL to expire to see changes made to my local zone...
