    This won't work. You need to disable the rule; the root servers are just part of the traffic chain. Goes down from that (.tld DNS, then the authoritative DNS servers for that domain…) These kinds of rules are completely retarded, the guys who wrote this just don't understand how DNS works.

  • I agree with the @dok here.  These DNS rules are a bit off the mark.  Maybe they are good in theory, but when put into actual practice they don't work so well.  They false positive too much.

    What strikes me - people who wrote this really don't seem to have ever run a recursive resolver? Because, exactly as described, you end up with all root DNS servers blocked, plus whole slew of others => totally broken DNS.  Anyone can kill DNS for everyone on the network merely by resolving a bunch of blacklisted domains. If you wanted to prevent damage, you'd block the actual traffic to hosts in that domain. Not block completely innocent DNS servers.
