In case more data points are required, neither of those servers are 
reachable from ISC. We appear to have no route for a.gtld-servers.net 
at all, and only a single path for b, which suggests some route 
propagation issues (we're well multi-homed in 3557; I'd expect to see 
lots of paths).

Maybe Verisign needs more (reliable) v6 transit.

That's not our problem; we see the route to 2001:503:231d::/48 just 
fine, for example:

jabley at r2.sfo2> show route 2001:503:a83e::2:30

jabley at r2.sfo2> show route 2001:503:231d::2:30
