You're better off not providing a hints file at all.

BIND ships with a built-in list of hints, and it will use this if you
don't provide a hints file. BIND's built-in list is updated by ISC
whenever root name server addresses change, or when IPv6 addresses are
added, for example.

This makes your configuration a bit simpler, and you don't have to care
about keeping your hints file up to date.
