A maximum file size may be enforced per crawler. Content which is after the maximum file size may be ignored. Google currently enforces a size limit of 500kb.

Your robots.txt file must be smaller than 500KB. John Mueller of Google reminded webmasters via Google+ that Google has a limit of only being able to process up to 500kb of your robots.txt file.
