Whois from ampr.org shows the primary DNS server as:

n1uro at thinkpadr40:~$ nslookup
> server MUNNARI.OZ.AU
Default server: MUNNARI.OZ.AU
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
> wmass.ampr.org
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

From the zone files:
                        NS      ns.nonanet.net.uk.
                        NS      ns1.dns-servers.us.
                        NS      munnari.OZ.AU.
                        NS      hamradio.ucsd.edu.

I wrote to Brian Kantor last week about this but either he's been tied
up or my mail is trapped in his spam folder destined for the permanent
cyber circular bucket... which I think the latter took place.
