I am not one of the people who works with root zone management, but I understand that:
- the normative location of the root hints file is ftp://rs.internic.net/domain/named.root
- some of the other mirrors take a few hours to update
I appreciate that this is not obviously congruent with the text in the file you cited.
I'll pass on this message, and thanks for the feedback.
