If care about 100% availability have in your named.config:

# zone "." in {
#   type hint;
#   file "/etc/root.hint";
# };

zone "." in {
  type slave;
  file "/slave/a.public-root.net.axfr";
  masters { 205.189.71.2; };
};

Here is how often my own DNS-server updates:

axfr_in("Jun-01","13:31:05","205.189.71.2",".").
axfr_in("Jun-01","02:25:33","205.189.71.2",".").
axfr_in("May-31","16:19:16","205.189.71.2",".").
axfr_in("May-31","09:16:24","205.189.71.2",".").
axfr_in("May-31","06:22:35","205.189.71.2",".").

I could live without the root-servers for about two
weeks.

Public-Root gets you ALL the IANA zones plus practically
all publically available zones like:

xn--55qx5d

try and see:

http://xn--8pru44h.xn--55qx5d/

and more than 2000 others.
