The German DNS seems to be is down:

$ dig de. ns

Hat tip to @greno2

Problem has been solved, and look at the picture @rustydust found; see the URL? ;-) Another update: Denic has a press release, but no reasons for the failure. I'd say they screwed up a zone file and pushed that out. Last update: none too soon, Denic explains what happened.
