Auckland, like most NZ universities uses BGP to prefer routes learned
from the NZ NREN (KAREN) as the traffic is free. The issue is
therefore that KAREN doesn't have connectivity to the root servers
inside NZ. If Karen goes down, Auckland should start using NZ based
root servers, but I don't think that has happened recently. I
understand that KAREN are working on improving their DNS service.
We currently record instance names for the .nz DNS servers. We will
have a look at adding those for the roots.

There's actually no L-Root server in New

have a test point to see directly.
25ms seems like the right time for packets RTT between Auckland and Sydney.
I'll restate, I observe that the monitoring node at Auckland Uni.
doesn't seem to have any connectivity to the numerous anycasted root DNS
servers inside NZ.
