DESCRIPTIONS

       ->  starting tinydns listening on ip ...

       tinydns logs this entry immediately before entering its
       receive/process/respond loop while telling on which IP it is bound.

       ->  ip:port:id + type name

       tinydns attempted to respond to a request.  The attempt may have failed
       due to a network error, but such errors are not logged.

            Field     Meaning
            ip        The IP address from which the request was received,
                      and to which the response was sent.
            port      The port number from which the request was received,
                      and to which the response was sent.
            id        The request id, which the client picks
                      and the server includes in the response.
            type      The type of records requested.
            name      The domain name for which records were requested.

       ->  ip:port:id - type name

       tinydns dropped a request because it did not have the authority to
       answer.  It only has the authority to answer if it has an SOA record
       for name or a suffix of name.
        Note that if it is unable to open the data.cdb file, it will have no
       authority for any domain.  The fields have the same meanings as in the
       + log entry.

       ->  ip:port:id I type name

       tinydns received a request that it does not implement, or that had
       invalid bits set in the header, so it responded with an rcode of 4

       tinydns received a request packet that either contained no query,
       contained more than one query, or otherwise could not be parsed.
       tinydns dropped the request.  The ip and port fields have the same
       meanings as in the + log entry.  The other field values are hardcoded.
