The machine that you call "k.l.m" identifies itself as "dns.metu.edu.tr".
It is  n o t  a root server.  If you went to school there and that was
how they taught you to set up DNS, please get a copy of DNS & BIND and
find out what you missed.  ;-)  The named.ca file should contain the
list of root servers.
