Re: root nameserver problems ?

- From our vantage point, it looks like most of the root nameservers
have bad delegation data.  Most of them return no delegation info
for what should be working domains:

COM. and NET. zone files were corrupted.

a-g were affected by this corruption, h-i did not take the
corrupted update (perhaps they're otherwise broken), and j-m
do not serve the affected zones.

a was finally corrected at 6:55am, and admins of b-g
were asked to reload their zones. It appears that none
of said admins have done so to date.

To enable our resolvers to work properly, we've had to tell them
to ignore the root nameservers which appear to have bad data.
On a Bind 4.X system, one can do this with the 'bogusns' configuration


J.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     146428  A
K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     146428  A
L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     146428  A
M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     146428  A

should all be fine, so please remove them from your list.
