I might be explaining what I mean poorly. If that's the case, please correct me.
This is what I'm referring to, as an example:

Addresses:, 2001:503:231d::2:30

Non-authoritative answer:     nameserver =     nameserver =

Authoritative answers can be found from: internet address = internet address =

The root nameservers know the IPs of and, no? Is (refferred from not a root of its own? This
is the change I'm referring to. I don't control any TLDs, just a .net in this

Anything that I should expect to be broken as a result of the whois data not
matching the auth-NS IP? I control both IPs in question, I merely needed to
separate my auth NS from my caching NS.
