I didn't mention it as I was commenting about local access.

The "closer" nameservers are used once the RTT statistics "points" to 
them.  Sometimes, the client ends up selecting the a server which is 
further away because of routing oddities.  As an unrelated comment 
the following nameservers might be queried when I send this message:

  sns-pb.isc.org        6 ms
  ns1.coza.net.za     165 ms
  secdns1.posix.co.za 322 ms
