In addition to which, his nameservers probably wouldn't *need* to reach the actual roots unless they'd managed to timeout their cache for things like .com and .org and .net. 'dig . soa' says: . 86400 IN SOA A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. NSTLD.VERISIGN-GRS.COM. 2007072000 1800 900 604800 86400 86400. Yummy. "Tune in tomorrow for updates". Most likely, it's a TLD server or three that he's unable to reach, not the actual roots themselves. But given that routing issues *are* included in the original message, and I've seen naught saying that there were any DNS servers in the "reachable but misbehaving" state, I have to conclude that root cause is a routing blurp.
