Fixed in CVS :
for the test see http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/zonecheck/test/dnssec.rb?root=zonecheck&view=log

Furthermore, all requests are send with EDNS if option --edns=always or if --edns=auto and tests performed at the beginning are correct (all the route to the nameserver allow EDNS). You can disallow the use of edns with --edns never.

Side note: IWBN to have a test "TCP or EDNS support" to be sure a name server supports at least one way to send large data. See also #28695

Modern DNS requests require the support of responses larger than the old limit of 512 bytes. So, it would be nice to be able to test if the authoritative name servers of a domain properly handle EDNS requests.

At least they must be reply FORMERR and, better, they must return the EDNS0 section with their limit (and it has to be larger than 512 bytes).
