A minor correction; 13 root servers but 26 root server addresses (each
currently has one IPv4 and one IPv6 address).

Note also that the root servers are not the only things you need to be
able to reach if you want your nameserver to operate with full
recursive lookups and you want to be able to resolve things outside
the root, arpa and root-servers.net zones.
