jftr: Do I need the RootServerInfo in the DNS/DHCP-Console?

Hi,

btw, assume I build my own local DNS-Zone myCorp. So my Domain is
mycorp.intern.

Bind shut forward all requests for other/external zones to my parent
resolver (from the provider). This is up and running fine! No problem!

Do I need the default zone RootServerInfo? Or it is save to delete them
from DNS/DHCP-Console? What is the reason for this zone in DNS/DHCP-Console?

    The reason you can access that from the console is in case it needs to
    be changed. If you can delete them from the console they would be
    deleted from the system and then named could malfunction.

    Why would you want to delete it? A DNS needs that information to
    resolve names. The information is in a very small text file so deleting
    it is not going to reduce resource requirements. I do not know how
    named would react if that information were not present.
