I don't get why the root servers? It's easy to get a copy of the root
servers' zone file (or even reverse-engineer it, since the TLDs are well
known and "dig ns" will provide the nameservers for each TLD). Then you
configure named with static-stub to serve that copy. So even if the
attack is successful, for the root zone there is a simple and effective
work around which will allow the customers which use your forwarder to
happily go about their business.
