Title : Distributing Root or Authorittative Name Servers via
Shared Unicast Addresses
Author(s) : T. Hardie
Filename : draft-ietf-dnsop-hardie-shared-root-server-03.txt
Date : 08-Feb-01
This memo describes a set of practices intended to enable an
authoritative name server operator to provide access to a single
named server in multiple locations. The primary motivation for the
development and deployment of these practices is to increase the
distribution of DNS servers to previously under-served areas of the
network topology and to reduce the latency for DNS query responses
in those areas. This document presumes a one-to-one mapping between
named authoritative servers and administrative entities (operators).

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
