Re: IGPs and services?
The scenario the original poster described, wanting to have regionally based caching DNS servers for clients is a fine example of when in fact it is a good and plausible idea to run a routing protocol on a Unix machine. I've run ospf on the DNS servers to redistribute the same /32 loopback address at different pops on local machines. I know of at least one large provider who uses BGP to achieve the same thing...It works well because bind tends to be far more stable and robust than the routing protocol program. I would recommend BGP since you can filter everything to the (DNS) server and only announce the /32... I can imagine doing the same thing for smtp relay boxes, never tried it though.
