Was wondering if anyone else just had some strange DNS issues?

Querying for several domains, including google.ca and google.com, 
returned answers like this:

$ dig google.ca @

; <<>> DiG 9.5.0-P2 <<>> google.ca @
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 41733
;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;google.ca.			IN	A

;; Query time: 79 msec
;; WHEN: Wed Dec 10 13:43:03 2008
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 27

Notice the empty A record? I tried against My DNS servers, Interlink's 
DNS servers and against a couple of Bell's DNS servers and got the same 

After about ten minutes it all came back fine. Curious how widespread 
this was, if at all.
