No, no, no -- that's not a bug. WHOIS has done its job once it gets you to us.com. WHOIS does not know or care about "foo.us.com," nor should it. Getting you to "us.com" is the job of WHOIS; getting you to "foo.us.com" is then up to the DNS provider chosen by the owner of us.com. http://handsonhowto.com/dns101.html -- PRIVACY WARNING: Our mail delivery policy is to ignore all attempts by random strangers to dictate our mail delivery policy.
