IPv6 is not an issue :-)-O

Since they don't have DNSSEC EDNS doesn't matter, I think.

But, the root and whois show 4 name servers

zw.			172800	IN	NS	ns2.gip.net.
zw.			172800	IN	NS	ns3.telone.co.zw.
zw.			172800	IN	NS	ns1.telone.co.zw.
zw.			172800	IN	NS	ns2.telone.co.zw.

ns1.telone.co.zw.	172800	IN	A
ns2.telone.co.zw.	172800	IN	A
ns3.telone.co.zw.	172800	IN	A
ns2.gip.net. 		172800 	IN 	A

All name servers, including ns2.gip.net have only three name servers
listed (missing ns2.gip.net)

zw.			86400	IN	NS	ns1.telone.co.zw.
zw.			86400	IN	NS	ns2.telone.co.zw.
zw.			86400	IN	NS	ns3.telone.co.zw.

which are all on the same rack (France).

If either telone.co.zw failed to resolve or the data center went off
line, I don't know what would happen since ns2.gip.net does not know
about itself.

Probably failure to resolve ZW.
