The one clear issue that I see here is that the signer field in RRSIGs in responses from fiscal.treasury.gov is treasury.gov:

$ dig +dnssec @ns1.treasury.gov igt.fiscal.treasury.gov ds | awk '$4 == "RRSIG" { print $12 }'

Because there is a zone cut at fiscal.treasury.gov, the the signer should be fiscal.treasury.gov.  That being said, I can't tell at-a-glance why DNSViz is drawing ZSK 3908 in the fiscal.treasury.gov zone, rather than in the treasury.gov zone.
