I have observed cached/stale/unremoved/non-authorative/incorrect records on dns0.telstra.net and dns1.telstra.net in the past for a number of hosted domains that had previously had a service, and had paid up and cancelled some months prior, perhaps as recently as twelve months ago, and have made contact with the TELSTRA 'hostmasters' department to get them to remove stale domain records.
Later, I did have separate issues with SY-DNS01.TMNS.NET.AU and SY-DNS02.TMNS.NET.AU (Yes I did a search then cut and paste to find these ones), which s/perhaps//g indicated separate BigPond issues.
I'm not sure who rebrands as whom in this area, but the above were the experienced symptoms and resolution steps, bigpond was not the culprit, it was squarely a Telstra issue.
I haven't experienced it within the last twelve months however, which is nice.
I have not yet experienced it with Optus, however most of my customers who were savvy enough to get a business grade service with Optus were also savvy enough to not supply a domain name on their Ethernet service order forms.

I assume the references to Telstra are to Bigpond? Internet Direct
have had separation between recursive caches and authoritative servers
(and further seperation for Telstra Infrastructure) for a long, long
time. They don't even allow recursive queries to the auth DNS servers,
so there's no way it would interfere with customer queries.
