Hi,

Using anycast for f.root-server.org, should make this root server
available nearby, is my understanding. In my case (isp: xs4all, peering
with Amsterdams AMS-IX) it still means that the nearest f-server is
accross the ocean:

# dig +norec @F.ROOT-SERVERS.NET HOSTNAME.BIND CHAOS TXT
....
HOSTNAME.BIND. 0S CHAOS TXT "pao1e.f.root-servers.org"
....

Location Switch & Data PAIX, 529 Bryant, Palo Alto, CA, USA


This doesn't seem logical to me, since there are several servers
available in Europe (Paris, Lisboa, Munich, Madrid, Rome).

Is the (global anycast) routing correct for 192.5.5.241?
