a.gtld-servers (as well as B) now has an IPv6 address. Your IPv6
routing seems down.
With a recent dig (> 9.2 ?), you can use the -4 option to force
IPv4. Or you can either fix IPv6 or disable it.

By default, dig queries a A record. But it uses getaddrinfo to find
the address of the server it queries.
