I'd advise packagers to stop shipping a root hints file with BIND. It's
perfectly capable of using its built-in list to do a priming query. The
built-in list is kept up-to-date by ISC, so you'll always have the
latest copy when you update BIND.
I generate pull requests for the BIND port in Homebrew, and I fixed it
some time ago by deleting the root hints file.
