Thanks for your comment, Mark.  Yes, I know it‘s OK, because the NS RRset
and Glue of root server rarely change.

But  I do not find any specification on the priming process of resolver, so
I do the test and post on the mailing list  hoping to discuss and find how
priming woks in implementations and what it should be.  If it is open and
do not need any specification, it's fine.  Or maybe there some problem done
in my test, I just want to check it.
