Big increase in DNS service ?!?!

Wow... I just checked the root servers for the list of head servers from
a.root-servers.net...

Anyone knows why all servers are repeated twice...

From NSLookup I got...

(root)
        origin = A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
        mail addr = hostmaster.INTERNIC.NET
        serial = 1997072900
        refresh = 10800 (3 hours)
        retry   = 900 (15 mins)
        expire  = 604800 (7 days)
        minimum ttl = 86400 (1 day)
(root)  nameserver = J.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = B.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = C.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = D.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = E.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = I.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = G.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = J.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = B.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = C.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = D.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = E.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = I.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
(root)  nameserver = G.ROOT-SERVERS.NET
J.ROOT-SERVERS.NET      internet address = 198.41.0.10
K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET      internet address = 193.0.14.129
L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET      internet address = 198.32.64.12

Because of the size limit of the packets, I receive only 3 IP from the
query to a root server and I get the following response when starting DNS...

"NOTICE : check_root: 1 root servers after query to root server < min."

Not pretty...  Is this a screwup again or are they getting "spoofed" ???



Sincerely
