Seriously, don't

Don't query root servers directly. They're too important for functioning of Internet and they're not supposed to be queried by end users.

If your ISP's DNS sucks, just use some other public caching DNS.

It's bad for the health and well being of the internet to do this. This also sort of doesn't solve the problem of your ISP misbehaving. It would be better to use another public caching DNS server as someone else suggested and also file reports with your ISP for breaking their DNS system.
