that's how opennic/alternic/pacificroot and other bogus TLD's worked,
back when they existed.  It shouldn't break anything if your db.root
is really a copy of the root zone.  I don't think it even needs to be
a particularly up-to-date copy because all the dynamic-updating of
people maintaining their zones is happening at the zones one level
more specific than the root.

but the usual fix is to limit recursive service to your own ip's:

options {
        /* fucking chinese pointing themselves at me */
        allow-recursion { fw; };
acl localhost6  { ::1/128; };
acl fw          {;; 2610:1f8:dc::/48; localhost; localhost6; };

you can still serve your local authoritative zones to the internet
even though you refuse recursive service to the internet.  The root
servers themselves are configured this way.
