[dns-operations] Query to g.root-servers.net/ timing out

When running the verisign tool


quite often (maybe 1 in ten times) it reports timeouts when querying g.root-servers.net, e.g.

"Query to g.root-servers.net/ for ./DNSKEY timed out or failed"

I think this has been going on for some time.

My guess is that there may be some kind of network/firewall problem with g.root-servers.net,
although I don't see timeouts when I query directly.
