[Pdns-users] Does PowerDNS need the '.' domain?

After some complaints that our DNS server was not answering all
questions correctly, we found out that our PowerDNS installation thinks
it's authoritative for the root '.' domain. The domain has domain_id 1,
so my guess is that it has been added by the PowerDNS installation. The
problem seems to be that this copy of the root domain is not entirely up
to date. Two of the root servers have changed ip addresses since we
first installed PowerDNS.
Can someone explain whether the root domain is needed in our database,
and why? Should it be updated or can I just remove it?
Thanks in advance.
