It's a little worse than that in this case; 194 isn't a provider
block, it's one of the two superblocks in Europe, delegated to the
RIPE NCC (the other one is 193).

The bogus info is actually in the zone files themselves, according
to Lars-Johan Liman at KTH in Sweden (they run nic.nordu.net, one
of the root servers).  This means that all root servers will be
infected -- I just checked three, and yep, sure enough.

Those root operators reading this, please consider fixing the zone
file; the correct data is

194.IN-ADDR.ARPA.       518400  NS      sunic.sunet.se.
