It seems to me the confusion is simply over what is the oldest commercial domain name. symbolics.com was, according to many reliable sources, the first .com domain name, not the first domain name registered. (As for the first domain name registered, I don't know that the one listed is correct. Perhaps it comes down to what is meant by "registered" since testing of DNS went on for over a year and a half before, for example, the name mentioned was registered.)
