[dns-operations] DNS software test!

Yes, I fake the root and use the same set of queries.
However, the results are totally different when TA (top level auth.) uses NSD and SA (secend level auth.) uses NSD.
In my mind, the results should be similar in these two cases.
So, why?

Fake root + ensure that you're loading the same data set on a number of 
virtual upstream auth servers, with a large number of zones. May not
look very real, but at least you're testing against the same data set
every time.
