Hello and welcome :)

Yes, the machine on which the DNS server is run must be able to connect to UDP* port 53 of the hosts mentioned in root hints. Unless of course you only operate an authorative servers (in which case you don't serve foreign domains at all).


*theoretically TCP as well, however it is so rare that an answer will be so large that TCP will be used, you can ignore it
