# man rbldnsd
dnset Set of (possible wildcarded) domain names with associated A and
TXT values. Similar to ip4set, but instead of IP addresses,
data consists of domain names (not in reverse form). One domain
name per line, possible starting with wildcard (either with
starâdot (*.) or just a dot). Entry starting with exclamation
sign is exclusion. Default value for all subsequent lines may
be specified by a line starting with a colon.
Wildcards are interpreted as follows:
only example.com domain is listed, not subdomains
thereof. Not a wildcard entry.
all subdomains of example.com are listed, but not examâ

listed. This is a shortcut: to list a domain name itself
and all itâs subdomains, one may either specify two lines
(example.com and *.example.com), or one line (.examâ
