Just got on this thing (perhaps very belatedly) - root server trouble?

The point is that the *NAMESERVERS* aren't even resolvable 30% of the time!

That is, out of the NS records, I can't resolve about 30% of the *NS*
records that are listed in the .COM zone!

All I'm doing right now is a query for the NS lines for "." on the
nameservers which are uniquely represented in the .COM zone.  And, as of
right now, about 30% of those NS records don't go anywhere.

I haven't even started looked at the SOAs for the delegations yet....
