DM> how on earth did root-servers.com get in auth list?
It didn't. "[a-m].root-servers.net." did. The content DNS server
doesn't know anything about "saturncorp.com.", or even anything about
"com.". So it has returned a partial answer ending in a referral to the
nearest enclosing superdomain that it _does_ know about: ".".
I suspect that you are confused as to the meaning of "authority section".
