How did this happen anyway?  InterNIC? Postel?  Doesn't this error imply that
a  percentage of the Internet was unresolvable by the entire planet?

It would really be great to find out what chain of events got us a root
nameserver on our network;  not that we wouldn't mind donating  the resources
to run one - it would just be nice to know in advance.  :-)

Maybe we can get bilateral peering with BBN since we have a root server,
