I still see no answers from C or F from NYC via a Hurrican Electric
GRE tunnel, since my ISP (Verizon FiOS) still does not provide
native IPv6. :-(

    $ dig +short -t ns arpa. | sort |
        while read ns; do
          dig +short -t aaaa $ns |
          while read ip; do
            echo "@$ns[$ip]:"
	    dig -6 +norecur +noall +ans +nocl +nottl -t soa arpa. @$ip
	  done
        done

I get (for both UDP and TCP):

Perhaps the issue is on the HE.net side?  Don't know whether that's
expected.  Doing the test from a server in .DE where I have a guest
account, I get answers from all the roots:

    @a.root-servers.net.[2001:503:ba3e::2:30]:
    @b.root-servers.net.[2001:500:200::b]:

But it seems that DNSViz and I are (still) in the same situation
with regard to the C and F IPv6 roots.

    http://dnsviz.net/d/arpa/dnssec/

The IPv4 anycasts work fine:

    @a.root-servers.net.[198.41.0.4]:
    @b.root-servers.net.[199.9.14.201]:
    @c.root-servers.net.[192.33.4.12]:
