A system administrator reports that one of the two domain name servers does not seem to be responding to DNS requests from clients. The servers are both up and running, name service is running on them, and DNS requests appear in the logs. Both servers respond to queries made at the console. Which of the following tools should the systems administrator use to gather more information?
