if you check a non-existing domain you will get:

Warning: dns_get_record() [function.dns-get-record]: res_nsend() failed in ...

there is no way to validate if the domain does exist before calling dns_get_record().

Expected result:
the function should instead return an empty array.

The way I worked around this was to first check the record using this function: checkdnsrr()

That returns true or false.  If it returns true then I get my results using dns_get_record().

However, I was getting the error you are showing for a domain that actually exists, but it was a parked domain.  It came up with DNS settings for hostgator... So, I'm a little confused on that.

But in any case, that worked for me.
