Are you sure you removed the correct line? We have A records at the apex
of zones all over the place. See, for example, axlealliance.com.
blah.foo.com, on the other hand, shouldn't resolve unless there's an
explicit record for it, or a wildcard entry.

Perhaps it would be useful for you to post your zone file.
