Re: lists of DNS servers by region.

I don't think multiple 'A' record load balancing will return the IP address of the web server that is closest to the _query_source_. If this is true, then Akamai has reinvented the wheel with their near-by DNS setup on *.g.akamai.net entries. The NS entry 'name server' record that is closest to the _query_source_ may answer the DNS query.. I.e... such as f.root-servers.net serving many pacific traffic as well as western US in majority. -hc > > S >
