Could you kindly point me to the location of the current jndi-dns docs page? I can't seem to be able to even find anything related to that on the web. You might want to try to use your favorite search engine.

It might be reasonable. What wording would you suggest? To me it already *vaguely* addresses the TCP case by saying that "Each lookup is initially performed using UDP. If the response is too long to be returned in a UDP packet without being truncated, the lookup is repeated using TCP."
