If you were working on the master wouldn't it just go to your secondary
server (or vice versa) anyway without the F5? Do you do it to reduce
latency for people trying to resolve the domains you host?

That is to say if you've already put the two DNS servers in all your
Registrars wouldn't that take care of it?

We implement it so that we can do maintenance and/or lease-replacements
on our servers transparently and without having to change anything at
the registrar (which can be a pain when you host thousands of domains).
