When using DNSPort, Other Query type(MX,TXT) not resolved correctly

I'm using DNSPort to anonymize my DNS queries.
I changed from public DNS, because of PRISM scandal.

And I found this problem:

"A" Query resolved correctly,

nslookup -type=a

Address: X.X.X.X

but "MX" and "TXT" returns...

nslookup -type=mx

* can't find Not implemented *

So my question is, how can I request MX and TXT over Tor DNS?
This "DNSPort" will be great alternative to public dns services, if Tor can do this.

{An idea about this problem}
How about adding "DNSRelayIP"?


User can query A,MX,TXT to Tor DNS.
Tor will query A via Tor.
Tor will query MX and TXT to "DNSRelayIP"(TCP normal traffic).
