djbdns, specifically dnscache in this case.
dnscache's responses are generally much smaller than BIND's
responses. They do not include authority records (NS records
of the source name servers and SOA records for negative answers)
or additional records (A records relevant to NS or MX records).
When the answer section is truncated by UDP length limits, it
is eliminated entirely.
