I don't see any problems with the code: the second getaddrinfo call is supposed
to be called with 'name' and not 'ntop' - it is testing whether 'name' can be
parsed as is a numeric address (see the comment immediately above it). 

The use of a "0" for servname is consistent with other calls in OpenSSH - Itojun
explained it to me once a while ago, but I forget the rationale.

What does a reverse lookup using 'dig' show for the offending host?
