(http://www.wwtld.org/ongoing/bestpractices/BestPractice_10Mar2001.html) I found it interesting to note that a significant number of cctld servers ignore the suggestions for root-servers in BCP40/RFC2870... "Other major zone server operators (gTLDs, ccTLDs, major zones) may also find it useful." and leave recursion enabled on the ccTLD servers (2.5) - the old ns.eu.net was one of these, I believe RIPE have done the right thing with the new one. What is even more disturbing is that there is a non-zero number of ccTLD servers that are still cache poisonable.
