Hi Clark


It's down when looked upon from our DNS recursors in India as well.


I have seen in past with many domains (not TLDs though) that when they are
down due to non-reachability of authoritative servers for the zone, OpenDNS
and Google DNS still give answers. Likely they have some in-built
resistivity to these issues by serving the stale data when auth is
unreachable.
