[dns-operations] Upcoming DNS behavior changes to .com/.net/.edu name servers

I want to check on the real time status of a domain in the DNS.

dig +short returns nothing when using @I.GTLD-SERVERS.NET after the DNS 
behavior changes.

Or.. a bit misleading..

Simply using dig without +short seems to work.

Is there another recommended way to query the roots for a NS record, 
bypassing local DNS?
