i'm reading looking for your explanation but there isnt one.

and the A record is for what?
The A record is for "." (the DNS root). Or at least "." as public-root sees it.

anyway its on a private dns server, the internet roots are fine so why worry? :)
It might impact people who have drunk enough of the public-root kool-aid to be using it instead of the ICANN root. For everyone else, its just more evidence that alternative roots are usually a bad idea. ;-)
