Thanks for the pcap!

This shows that there are SRV requests, whose responses contain FORMERR
as you reported.  But then there are subsequent A and AAAA lookups which
return the expected IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

This is what i would expect to happen if dirmngr was to treat the SRV
lookup as a failure.

Is this your patched dirmngr or the stock dirmngr?
