It's what they've set up, apparently. I agree it doesn't match anything
I've seen either.

I've had mixed results (mostly bad) trying to get useful information
from DJBDNS via dig. I keep a BIND caching server around for that
and a few other reasons. Try host (Debian package bind9-host) or
nslookup. (dig +trace is particularly useful, but fails miserably when
the local resolver is DJBDNS.)

FTR, lookups via the BIND caching server in the office here bring back
correct data according to your TinyDNS snippet above.
