We're in the process of enabling IPv6, and something went south in the
legacy DNS system when adding the 'AAAA' record, which clobbered the 'A'
record (and still failed to create the 'AAAA' record). This was relayed
to me but ITS, as I don't have access to the DNS tools myself.

Our traffic dropped by about 88x (normally 600GB/day down to 6.8GB/day)
during the DNS.
