DNS not resolving at all

Hi guys

I had a patch of time, where i was not getting DNS responses from nextdns.io.

it was so bad that I could not even open nextdns.io to see what the cause is.
times below from the log files from when I suspect the issue occurred

 nslookup commands:

192.168.0.2 is my default gateway which has next DNS configured with a linked IP. no changes in nextdns configuration since last night.

the weirder part is that the log file does not show then failed requests, even though I specifically targeted your DNS with nslookup.

Is there anything that could explain this behaviour?

I am looking to use nextdns in our company production environment, but having a few angry colleagues due to DNS failing to respond at all is not going to sell this implementation at all :)
