      Read "DNS and BIND" and then perhaps you will amend your comment.  If you look at the rootzone file for ORSC, you will find all the ICANN TLD's, ccTLD's etc.  Does that mean that all of them are alternate roots?

Choosing which server to resolve to is any registry's choice.  The real question is why doesn't ICANN include the other rootzone TLD's in their rootzone file so that everyone can see the rest of the internet via their servers?  ORSC and other roots such as Pacific Root, Superroot cooperate to provide non colliding TLD's and always include the ICANN rootzone as a subset.  It's ICANN who isn't cooperative.  Hmmm....
