Most of the roots are on main internet backbones and should they find
themselves under attack, the Tier 1 providers they sit on could try
filtering or ramping up bandwidth.
If this failed and the root DNS servers when down, as I said Tuesday to our
server administrator at work: all of us in the internet field will be
washing cars or asking "Would you like fries with that?" as our new careers.
