Just an update to this... I've been doing some digging in the root zone, and it appears that both the opennic and icann NS server entries are being added, overlapping.  This is probably why some servers are getting the wrong zone files.  I'll see what I can do over the weekend to resolve the conflict and make the script notify me when other conflicts come up in the future.

ICANN appears to have activated their own .ing TLD this week.  I'm starting to see tier-2 servers failing due to receiving zone files from the ICANN side rather than the OpenNic copy, so we either need to take measures to disable the ICANN version from opennic servers, or we need to vote to shut down our own .ing TLD.

For those interested, please check the SOA for your .ing zone:
# dig +short SOA ing. @my_server

Since Tim has already said he is not interested in fighting to retain the .ing zone I would like to call for a vote to drop the zone.  We could certainly add another TLD later to replace it, but for now we need to resolve the conflict.
