If you would rather have this configurable you can generate your own root-hints
file like this:
dig @a.root-servers.net ns . +bufsiz=4000 > my.hint.file
or download it from
ftp://ftp.internic.net/domain/named.root or
and then off course specify it in the recursor.conf.

rio_dprintk (RIO_DEBUG_ROUTE, "LIES! DAMN LIES! %d LIES!\n",Lies);
