[zonecheck-tests] nameservers are using the same IP address

Hello folks,

I am just about to configure zone check for our purposes. While testing
I came across that output being obviously wrong (sorry for the locale
settings):

#######################################
#
ZONE  : udag.de.
NS <= : server1-ns1.udagdns.net. [62.146.28.82, 62.146.28.82]
NS    : server1-ns3.udagdns.net. [62.146.33.102]
NS    : server1-ns2.udagdns.net. [62.146.33.101]

f> All addresses should be distinct

For any reason my local resolver receives two identical addresses while
resolving server1-ns1.udagdns.net:

$ dnsqr a server1-ns1.udagdns.net
1 server1-ns1.udagdns.net:
73 bytes, 1+2+0+0 records, response, noerror
query: 1 server1-ns1.udagdns.net
answer: server1-ns1.udagdns.net 172798 A 62.146.28.82
answer: server1-ns1.udagdns.net 172798 A 62.146.28.82

While this behaviour of my resolver is strange, the answer (FEHLSCHLAG
means failure) is definitely wrong, because the hostnames are equal,
too.

Any idea how this can be fixed?

Kind regards
