A better question is: can a host with a .to domain name server as
anything other than a root server for a domain in .to?  .to lookups to
the root are supposed to refer to the root servers for .to, no?

I shouldn't think that Internic ought to have _any_ bearing on stuff
that happens in .to; just because the King and his minions are
promoting themselves as "just like .com" does _not_ mean the mechanics
work that way.
