Return to whois.internic.net.
whois.networksolutions.com is just wrong -- it only returns information
for Network Solutions domains.
whois.opensrs.net is a bit better -- it returns information for OpenSRS
domains, and otherwise recurses to the correct whois server for other
domains -- unfortunately it is not canonical, and cannot be construed as
"correct." Other recursing proxies include whois.geektools.com and pallas.
eruditorum.org, neither of which is "official" either.
For good or for ill, we go back to whois.internic.net, which is the canonical
source for this information.
