I have no idea why this is this way.

Yes, of course. From my root-zone:

.  10800   IN      NS      root1.
.  10800   IN      NS      root2.
.  10800   IN      NS      root3.
.  10800   IN      NS      root4.
root1. 10800 IN A
root2. 10800 IN A
root3. 10800 IN A
root4. 10800 IN A
com. 10800 IN NS root3.
com. 10800 IN NS root4.

All these records I can query with dig without any problem, but dig +trace still fails. :-(
