Google Public DNS blocks wikileaks.org (Update: No, they don't)

It seems that Google is blocking wikileaks.org in its ‘Public DNS’ servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4):

<div id="_mcePaste">; <<>> DiG 9.7.1-P2 <<>> @8.8.8.8 wikileaks.org
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 50227
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;wikileaks.org.         IN  A

;; Query time: 2457 msec
;; SERVER: 8.8.8.8#53(8.8.8.8)
;; WHEN: Fri Aug 27 18:10:43 2010
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 31</div>

Update: Sorry Google, for me doubting you. As it turns out, you did no evil, you were just a bit slower than the others.
