If we use history as a guide, the network-wide problems with DNS have usually been related to problems at the central source which were then copied out to the slaves. Problems with the slaves, although perhaps more frequent than we would like, have generally affected different slaves in different ways at different times. I'm a bit concerned when I read about a plan to install identical servers, with identical configurations, with identical software, connected to identical routers also with identical software and configurations, operated by a single human point of contact. Its bad enough all the roots use BIND. The lack of genetic diversity makes things very vulnerable to common errors.
