That's correct: VeriSign Global Registry Services operates the name servers

distributed throughout the world.

We are in the process of diversifying all aspects of the com/net/org name
server constellation: name server software, name server hardware and OS, and
network hardware and OS. Our goal is to eliminate the possibility of a
single hardware or software defect affecting all the sites.
