I've only been able to find a best practise guideline that specifies
that the nameserver be online 24/7.

(http://www.wwtld.org/ongoing/bestpractices/BestPractice_10Mar2001.html)

I found it interesting to note that a significant number of cctld servers
ignore the suggestions for root-servers in BCP40/RFC2870...
"Other major zone server operators (gTLDs, ccTLDs, major zones) may also find 
it useful." and leave recursion enabled on the ccTLD servers (2.5) - the old 
ns.eu.net was one of these, I believe RIPE have done the right thing with the 
new one.  

What is even more disturbing is that there is a non-zero number of ccTLD
servers that are still cache poisonable.
