Perhaps because a root zone is like any other zone. It has a SOA
record and NS records at the apex and other records.
. 3600 SOA server.example.net. hostmaster.example.net. 1 3600 1200 2419200 3600
. 3600 NS server.example.net.
. 3600 NS another.example.net.
server.example.net. 3600 A 220.127.116.11
another.example.net. 3600 A 18.104.22.168
