I don't think there's a need to lookup on the root servers,
as all the our lookups are done by our forwarder (ISP's DNS)

     the error messages is caused by your "disabling
     nslookup".  Why do you do this?

     there are several ways to disable queries to the
     root servers. it is generally not useful to do so.

     again, why are you doing this?
