As far as I can tell, DNS for icann.org is functioning as designed.
It has several name servers dispersed across geographical areas and
network topology which continue to give authoritative answers for the
icann.org zone without interruption.  Isn't that how its supposed to
work?

ICANN has nothing to do with routing, the world wide web, or lots
of other things on the Internet.
