comment 501 Not Implemented error
Potentially, but it also changes your starting point. This is a very unusual response and very unlikely to come from a stock Apache config. It's likely an interaction with something else within the development environment, which isn't topical for us to pursue here.

WAMP is not considered very on-topic for ServerFault; refer to this and this. I'm flagging this for migration.

Keep in mind that this is DNS...UDP carries the majority of the weight, unless we're dealing with oversized queries. (i.e. EDNS)

comment Apache DNS Resolves Slow on Route53 Configuration
Your authority is fine, I ran the SOA query against www. instead of the base domain. Answer has been edited.

@Michael I can, and +trace works, but something is jacked on these DNS servers. I've elaborated within the answer.

@Michael Pardon? I can resolve all of them just fine. That did leave to discovering the actual problem though...

comment Apache DNS Resolves Slow on Route53 Configuration
There's a disconnect between your perception of a problem and your proposed path to correcting it. A delay in resolving a DNS entity in this scenario occurs somewhere between a client computer, the caching DNS server it points to, and the authoritative DNS server that contains the answer. Nowhere along that path does httpd get involved, as your virtualhosts are not trying to resolve anything. I recommend focusing on the actual problem you see (i.e. show us the DNS query failing).

comment Bad owner or permissions on /root/.ssh/config in a virtual machine
@sethcall This was migrated from ServerFault awhile back, so the original context had to include production environment standards.

comment I'm being redirected to a parking site when dns resolution fails
@Matias It's possible that your DNS server or the machine acting as the network's default gateway has been compromised.

comment Is my SSD drive going bad? SMART error
That's a little bit better. Note that the detailed output wasn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just a good idea to identify outside of it what message was concerning you so that people have a point of reference.

comment Is my SSD drive going bad? SMART error
I can find the error. My point was more that if your presentation requires people to search the entire output to find the message that may be concerning you, many people aren't going to take the time to look for it.

"Here's a wall of text, do I have a problem?" isn't one of the best presentation methods. In future questions, try to identify what it is you saw within the output that caused you to be concerned.
