resolv.conf, NetworkManager, no ping response on one nameserver


byers@f12 ~]$ uname -r
2.6.32.11-99.fc12.i686.PAE
this is a wired box, no wless
router at 192.168.2.1,
eth0 presently using static ip 192.168.2.8,
but that is recent change from previous dhcp 192.168.2.100

I don't think that change is causing my ping symptoms:


byers@f12 ~]$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
search pacbell.net
nameserver 206.13.20.12
nameserver 206.13.31.12
nameserver 68.94.156.1

the first one fails to respond to ping
while the next two respond to ping ok:


[byers@f12 ~]$ ping -c 5 206.13.20.12

Summary:
I see zero response from ping 206.13.20.12,
while ping 206.13.31.12 , 68.94.156.1 both look ok

Is this normal?
I have been using these same IP for nameservers for years,
most recently in F10,F11 and now F12.
Why would NM supply a nameserver that is unresponive to ping?

pinging 206.13.29.12 and 206.13.30.12 also look ok,
but neither of these are in the NM resolv.conf

Am I free to get rid of the one failing ping, 206.13.20.12
and substitute one of 206.13.29.12 or 206.13.30.12?

thanks for any advice
Jack


It looks like the first name server may be down, but the last is working:

$ nslookup
server 206.13.20.12
Default server: 206.13.20.12
Address: 206.13.20.12#53
www.ibm.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
[sdstern@sds-desk ~]$ nslookup
server 68.94.156.1
Default server: 68.94.156.1
Address: 68.94.156.1#53
www.ibm.com
Server: 68.94.156.1
Address: 68.94.156.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.ibm.com canonical name = www.ibm.com.cs186.net.
Name: www.ibm.com.cs186.net
Address: 129.42.56.216

If this is an issue (e.g., slow to lookup addresses), change your router
(if that's what's providing your name servers via DHCP) to use OpenDNS
or edit resolv.conf to use the servers below.


208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
