No, this is the correct behaviour. See the DNS-HowTo. Here is an extract:
DNS is a hierarchical system. The top is written `.' and pronounced `root'.
Default Server: localhost
Start asking a root server.
> server c.root-servers.net.
Default Server: c.root-servers.net
Set the Query type to NS (name server records).

Ask about edu.
The trailing . here is significant, it tells the server we're asking
that edu is right under . (this narrows the search somewhat).
