Well, I'm not authoritative, but I don't have a root hints file on my
systems. Instead I rely on the hints built in to named, which get updated
when I update BIND. Also it doesn't matter if the hints are out of date
since the root name server list changes very infrequently and you only
need one of them to work for named to start OK.
