"2) Wildcards are evaluated on the server side, the client doesn't know that a wildcard exists (except that it might be able to imply that a wildcard is there because any random query returns the same thing). * Client requests an A or AAAA record for `` * the server sees that `* IN A` matches and returns `A` In the CNAME case, it would be * Client requests an A or AAAA record for `` * The server sees that `* IN CNAME` matches and returns `CNAME` * The server knows that an A or AAAA record was requested, so it looks up A and AAAA records for ``, and includes that in the response.
