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
