Dns sometimes fails using Google DNS / automatic dnssec

It's weird. If you repeatedly query 8.8.4.4 without the DO bit, you get a
mixture of responses with and without an RRSIG and with varying TTLs. With
DO it appears to consistently return an RRSIG in the answer and the TTL
drops monotonically. 8.8.8.8 is similar except DO=0 replies don't include
RRSIGs. (Querying from JANET UK and hitting some servers a lethargic 12ms
away.)

while sleep 1; do dig +dnssec @8.8.4.4 m1.mailplus.nl; done
