Hmm.  I was under the impression that our maintainer object 
(NETRAIL-NOC), AS object (AS4006), and route object (, 
containing the server in question) were sufficient.  Do I need to go 
through some additional motions to satisfy ANS?  Also, this seems to 
only be an intermittent problem (I would think that ANS not carrying our 
packets would result in complete unreachability).
