1) when you tell host to ask a nameserver for an answer, it prints out
what it gets for answers.

2) If you ask a server that does not provide recursion, and it returns
only a referral, and you didn't ask to see  the non-answer part of the
reply, then you get (correctly) that there are 'no answers' for your

Either (1) ask a nameserver that is going to deal with following the
referrals, or (2) use a tool (host -v, or preferrably dig) to follow the
referrals yourself.

Not a bug.
