Resource Records are defined by RFC 1035 (and augmented by others). Resource Records describe global properties of a zone and the hosts or services that are part of the zone. They are described in detail in Chapter 8. Resource Records have a binary format, used internally by DNS software and when sent across a network e.g. zone updates, and a text format which is used in zone files.
foo.com. IN SOA ns.joe.com. root.foo.com. ( 2003080800 ; se = serial number 3h ; ref = refresh 15m ; ret = update retry 3w ; ex = expiry 3h ; min = minimum ) IN NS ns1.foo.com. IN MX 10 mail.anotherdomain.com. joe IN A 192.168.254.3 www IN CNAME joe
