The last time I asked them, F-root had a "we allow it because it's the 
right thing to do but we don't like it" policy. Given that ICANN 
operates an infrastructure purposely built for doing zone transfers, and 
given that they offer more zones than are on the roots, that's the way I 
recommend people go. YMMV.
