1) Both of the listed Nameservers for windowsupdate.microsoft.com timed out when I sent them non recursive DNS requests.Can anyone shed light here?
2) I killed my DNS cache, and asked again for the NS records for windowsupdate.microsoft.com. A new third one was listed, and one of the original servers began to respond.
3) Another reload shows only 2 servers listed again, and they both respond.
Looks to me as if Microsoft is altering global delegation of their windowsupdate service. Maybe diversifying the dns structure as they did with microsoft.com after the attacks a while back? They now have 12 DNS servers scattered around the globe, just to serve microsoft.com dns.
