I suppose that I meant any subdomains that aren't themselves anchored with dlv (or otherwise configured as trust anchors by a validating resolver).  If there are multiple anchors within a hierarchy, I don't know how other implementations handle it, but dnsviz currently prefers a "good" path to a "broken" path if multiple paths exist, whether one is more specific or not.

There will be others...
