I understand that a series of requests must be made to
the DNS servers to read the records sequentially until
records with v=spf1 are read.
Does that mean that a DNS inquiry cannot request the
next record that matches a specified string?
But, if that could be done -- have the DNS server read
the records until the matching string was found (or the
end of the records for that domain) -- each inquiry
would return always return an SPF record wouldn't it?
It wouldn't cause any increase in disk I/O load at the
DNS server either.
