You want option c:

c) Serve your own version of "root-servers.net" containing AAAA's

This never occurred to me but it indeed is the best way to do it. All
the root-servers have names in root-servers.net, as such just make your
own master zone containing:

B.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      A
B.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      AAAA    2001:478:65::53
F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      A
F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      AAAA    2001:500::1035
H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      A
H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      AAAA    2001:500:1::803f:235
K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      A
K.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      AAAA    2001:7fd::1
M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      A
M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.     3600    IN      AAAA    2001:dc3::35

+ optionally the other roots-servers as found on www.root-servers.org

And presto. You don't even have to turn of glue fetch etc, as the above
zone will override the glue then anyway.

Good one Mark, thanks.
