Hello @Mishin ,


Thanks for. your question. I'd like to understand more about your issue. When you say the Palo Alto is acting as a DNS server for your clients, do you mean you have setup DNS proxy on the Palo? If you configure a DNS Proxy Rule , wildcards are accepted for a Domain. Here is a techdoc explaining how the Firewall is able to resolve wildcard domains.
