So, out of curiousity, i loss of 1 of 13 gtld servers important? I believe (though I could be mistaken) that these are actually anycast as well. I think dropping even 2-3 of the servers probably wouldn't affect overall performance would it? won't bind pick the 'best' place to ask regardless and stick/prefer that over 'slow' servers? It's certainly an interesting data point, but how does it affect the network as a whole? (perhaps this was the 1 hour/year permitted for maint on the network/device in question?)
