Yes, a bare-metal test for each OS would also be quite interesting.

You also apparently used a different concurrency level for the reported FreeBSD test. Why? What if you use the exact same parameters?

comment Question about Domain Forwarding [beginner]
Well the rule about CNAME being the lone RR is important for every CNAME, no matter what level it is at or what purpose it might be intended for, so if you remember the rule correctly then it also works for this particular purpose and you don't have to care what "top" level domain(s) you are working with. The downside here is that an SOA and NS records are required even if one wants example-a.co.uk to behave exactly the same as example-b.co.uk so while a CNAME might seem like an ideal solution, it cannot be used.

comment Question about Domain Forwarding [beginner]
The level is irrelevant -- anywhere any other records are required, such as where an SOA and NS records are required, there cannot be a CNAME. An SOA and NS records are not always at the second level -- take for example example.co.uk where the SOA would be at the third level.

comment Question about Domain Forwarding [beginner]
The level is irrelevant -- CNAMES can only be used for domains where absolutely no other resource records are used.

revised Question about Domain Forwarding [beginner]
A CNAME cannot exist where other records must also exist, and *short.com* will require at minimum an SOA record and one or more NS records.

comment Question about Domain Forwarding [beginner]
I just came across this question today and I see this answer also makes a misleading suggestion which is actually incorrect, and as the accepted answer that may mislead other readers somewhat.

comment Can a backup mx server be configured to reject email submissions if it can connect to the primary mx?
a "backup" MX server doesn't just invite spam -- it invites loss of legitimate mail too! It is far too easy to underestimate the problems and risks of doubling the maintenance and monitoring overhead, and even the tiniest cost in overhead would vastly outweigh any possible advantage except for the most exceptionally odd configuration requirements (which would of course require their own exceptional justification)

comment What to do if one doesn't want to receive email bounces?
not accepting and handling messages sent to the reverse path is a gross violation of sender expectations and a gross violation of good neighbour behaviour. (regardless of whether those messages have an empty sender envelope address themselves, but especially if they have an empty sender address)
