Validating resolver and trust anchors

Hi, I am trying to configure my F5 as a validating resolver. I am running 14.0 with a lab license so DNS is licensed. I am able to successfully resolve when using a transparent cache and a pool of DNS servers. I am able to successfully resolve when using a resolver cache. However, when trying to configure a validating resolver cache I am lost. If I am using a pool of dns servers which includes 8.8.8.8, what trust anchor should I configure? Also, what is the difference between a trust anchor and a dlv anchor? Do I need both? I have attempted to use the root trust anchors but I have no idea if that is correct either.

 

Root trust anchors I used.

Since these trust anchors are from iana.org, the root DNS I have removed all DNS servers and I am using root hints only. Still no luck.

So while troubleshooting and making a ton of changes I am now able to resolve while using the validation resolver cache. To test what may have been the issue I removed the trust and dlv anchors and it is still resolving. If that is the case, what is the point of the trust anchors? Even if I don't have trust anchors should gtm still resolve recursive lookups when using a validating resolver cache?
