We¹ve corrected the update issue and subsequently fixed the ³last update²
field.  The latest files are available on the rs.internic.net servers (for
example, ftp://rs.internic.net/domain/named.root).

Joe is right ‹ http://www.internic.net/domain/named.root is maintained by
ICANN.  I believe that ICANN pulls updates from rs.internic.net on a
scheduled basis.  We¹re following up with ICANN to confirm.
