SOA for ebay.com does indicate, assuming serial is to be interpreted in
the usual YYYYMMDDnn format, that they haven't changed anything in ~2

;; ANSWER SECTION:
ebay.com.               3600    IN      SOA     sjc-dns1.ebaydns.com.  hostmaster.ebay.com. 2012092800 3600 1800 604800 86400


Traceroute to any of the above DNS servers is worthless, as they appear
to drop ICMP at the immediate borders of their networks.
