Re: g.root-servers.net returns NXDOMAIN for com.

Currently G isn't answering queries, so it's not causing a problem. A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET and H.ROOT-SERVERS.NET don't agree as to the minimum TTL (518400 vs 172800), but that's not going to wreck anything. >Hence, if you randomly query the one server that is returning NXDOMAIN >for com, all com lookups will fail. This is why BIND 8 has the bogus characteristic, or why one may need to edit their root hint file. Too bad both require a reload/restart.
