Ideally, I want dns1 and dns2 to take queries always if available and
never the dns-slave server unless there is no other option as it will be
serving old data. It would be nice if I could do it in a distributed
fashion (distributing queries to all up DNS servers EXCEPT the slave)
due to the number of incoming queries which is nearing the performance
levels of a single DNS server on occasion. I am planning to add an extra
pair of servers to the pool so it would be nice if the queries were
distributed over all 4 of them.
I also plan to add other DNS servers from different regions into the
same pool with a cost of between the dns1/dns2 servers and dns-slave so
that they can also be used in the case of dns1/dns2 being down.
