Thanks for the response. It used to work correclty on my WRT - did the number
of addresses increase recently (the last month, I'd guess)?

I suspect that the limit I'm running up against is not in the DNS
protocol, but in an implementation. I don't have a source tree
set up for OpenWRT, but will try to track one down.

I think that using regional pools makes sense; that's the way that the public
NTP servers are set up (www.pool.ntp.org). 

Interestingly enough, that machine is using "pool.ntp.org" to get 
the names of NTP servers. But the DNS response to a query on that
address returns only 5 addresses, even though there are over
1400 hosts in the pool...
