Appendix A. DNS Message Format and Resource Records

This appendix outlines the format of DNS messages and enumerates the most common resource record types. The resource records are shown in their textual format, as you would specify them in a zone datafile, and in their binary format, as they appear in DNS messages.

We've included the portions of RFC 1035, written by Paul Mockapetris, that deal with the textual format of master files (what we called zone datafiles) or with the DNS message format (for those of you who need to parse DNS packets).
