Actually, the MSU DNS servers think they are authoritive for gllug.org. 
  I believe MSU hosted the domain for some time... it appears the 
nameservers for gllug.org have changed, but hostmaster at msu.edu was not 
notified to remove them from their servers; hence, they are providing 
old/stale records.
