For further completeness, anybody with a zone close in delegation  
distance to the root who desires greater operational, topological or  
geographical diversity in its NS set would do well to ask for  
assistance on this list. There are subscribers on most continents who  
are happy to donate authoritative nameservers to the cause, in  
addition to the fine services operated by both PCH and ISC. Ask and  
ye shall receive.
