It is highly improbable that all these name servers are unreachable
from you. Therefore, I suspect that *content* is the issue. RIPE-NCC
zones are signed with DNSSEC. Are you sure you do not have a broken
middlebox which deletes DNSSEC-signed answers?

(I tried from an US/Datotel/Level3 machine and everything works.)
