Actually no, not completely sure ...

; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1 <<>> @198.41.0.4 ns
; (1 server found)
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

I can ping 198.41.0.4 though ...

As I said, if I add:
forwarders { 165.76.12.2; 165.76.116.2; };
forward only;
to my named.conf, I can dig google.com, but "dig @198.41.0.4 ns" still
fails.

I'm confused.
