you did follow rfc 2182, right.  so, those particular nameservers being
down should not be of too much concern for operation as your secondaries
pick up the load.

anyway, if the rfc2142 contacts haven't been exhausted, the broadcast to
nanog is inappropriate, as is the precedence that has developed here to
ignore the rfc and any entity who chooses not to maintain the contact
addresses per the rfc.
