. is available for axfr from B, C, and F. If you want a local root, the
correct solution is to grab . from the authoritative source and use it.

And if you think it's not broken, ask anyone who has had to deal with
users who don't understand why, for some values of foo, mail to
user at foo.info may end up at two completely different places. There is
only one root.
