RE: [ga] DNSO ICANN board member
You are confusing TLD root servers with root-zone servers here.
Root-zone servers only answer for the root-zone and redirect TLD queries
to TLD root servers, which only the TLD registry can run. Which is
precisely what root-zone servers should do. As a result, "of course"!
None of us, using ORSC root-zone, resolve for any other TLD but our own
(if we even have one) and we will point to other TLD root servers, as
well as the legacy TLD root servers (firewalls permitting).
