Verizon DNS Routing

I have a web server that is setup and I have reports of any user on the Verizon network (FiOS, Verizon Wireless, T1's, etc) using verizon DNS servers are not able to resolve the DNS records on the server. If they change their DNS to any other provider it works perfectly fine. I have been getting bounced around the circle with support trying to speak with someone to resolve the problem. If I do a dig or nslookup from some VZ DNS servers, I am getting a REFUSED error. See sample below:

That's faulty logic. What you're seeing is simply Verizon's DNS server refusing to resolve DNS queries for IPs that are not on their network. That's quite common for ISPs to do. It's happening to me, too, from a non-Vz network.

I resolved the issue with VZ over the phone.

You can always use public google DNS if you're not on verizon, 8.8.8.8

I personally use my own local DNS server on my fios though.
