If I understand you correctly,
The root hints file has the following:
. 3600000 IN NS A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET.
A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 3600000 A 188.8.131.52
A.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. 3600000 AAAA 2001:503:BA3E::2:30
But 'dig @<a-m>.root-servers.net . ns produces the following for all but
H, K, and L:
;; ANSWER SECTION:
. 518400 IN NS a.root-servers.net.
;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
a.root-servers.net. 3600000 IN A 184.108.40.206
... you point to the diffrence in TTLs.
There is nothing new in this. This is the difference between NSD &
BIND. It has been pointed out various root operators in the past.
If I remember correctly, NSD takes the TTL for root-servers.net and
not from the glue.
