You're right, I'm seeing the same from here:

$ dig @a.root-servers.net gov. any

Subject: the GOV top-level domain


|Is it just me, or are other people having trouble with the GOV
|domain today.
|
|The a.root-server.net doesn't seem to be returning the NS records
|for the GOV domain.  I'm not a 'dig' expert, so what am I doing
|wrong?
|
|Here is a normal DIG response for the COM top-level domain
|
|# dig @198.41.0.4 com. ns
