Phew, not alone. I thought something similar, I see the same problem either “secondarying" the root zone
or using a root.hints file.

Curiously it works perfectly when I disable IPv6. I can get a packet trace but with all the DNSSEC stuff it
gets crazy to check.

I was wondering, what kind of errors can fall into that “default/unspecified” error cathegory?

A race condition in the cache?
