That's correct: VeriSign Global Registry Services operates the name servers
and ancillary equipment at all 13 com/net/org name server sites, which are
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.
