SLES 10 DNS Compliance - RFC 2052

Can anyone answer a simple question that i can't seem to find an answer for? Is the SLES 10 DNS Server RFC 2052 compliant? I running into some issues with adding windows workstations to a domain and few of the support docs point in that direction.

If by that you mean "can the DNS server software in SLES10 handle SRV RRs?",
the answer is yes.

The DNS server in SLES 10 is based on ISC BIND 9.3.2,
http://www.isc.org/sw/bind/view/?release=9.3.2

RFC 2052, replaced by RFC 2782, is "A DNS RR for specifying the location of
services (DNS SRV)",
http://rfc-ref.org/RFC-TEXTS/2782/index.html

ISC BIND started supporting SRV RRs a long time ago; it is e.g. mentioned in
the changes for BIND 8.2.2
(http://www.isc.org/sw/bind/docs/bind8.2_highlights.php)
