nope. Other than it's a A record for a local name of "bark"...

looks like it's copied verbatim from this... http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=G...20bark&f=false

Yes i found the same article. It does not address the question. I have no bark entry in the reverse lookup. This is why i asked the question. This is only found in the forward lookup zone. I was wondering if this is a linux command for DNS that i am unfamiliar with. Or if this had some other functionality other than a server name.
