Which is worse, turning off all validation for 24 hours or turning off 
validation for just .gov for 24 hours?

Ideally, it is best to turn off validation for as narrowly focused a zone 
as possible for as short a time as possible.  'rndc nta apod.nasa.gov X 

How long does it take to go to DNSVIS or the like to find where the break 
is?  Time and permission to discover are minimized.  Inclination cannot be 
controlled for, but those who know about 'rndc nta ___' will hopefully be 
aware of the tools to test before implementing.
