root server update

So now everyone will start sending test DNS requests to the servers
and overload them even further.

Does anyone have any helpful figures on how testing is causing
its own problems? I hear this shadowy complaint from time to
time -- and yet I am skeptical. Unless you go severely overboard
in the frequency of your testing, it should be only a drop in
the bucket.

How many times do my DNS servers query the root servers? Maybe
25,000 times a day? Or maybe 10 times that? What does a check

I've done parsing of the DNS server logs to avoid such things
in the past, but I don't see it as that big of a deal.
