I have created a number of TXT records for my domain on the Digital Ocean name servers: TXT awesage.com returns “v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:126.96.36.199 ~all” 3600
However when I query directly against the DO name servers my TXT records are not being returned:
; <<>> DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu <<>> awesage.com TXT @ns1.digitalocean.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 60734 ;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1 ;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

Other records created such as A and CNAME are being returned correctly. As I am querying DO name servers directly propagation delay should not be an issue. Why aren’t my TXT records being served? Any help to resolve this issue would be appreciated.
