I would truly love to see the data you have that backs this up. Pointers?
(Note that this is not rhetorical -- I'm doing some work right now in which
this info would be quite helpful).
i can show the auth data I have, the (to me) data from large caches is
suggested in places like OARC and elsewhere that suggest caching is
a huge factor is the scaling of the DNS. I've been flogging the idea
that it would be an excellent idea to correlate data flows between
servers and maybe have a couple of interested parties. if your doing
similar work, we should talk in a more restricted setting.
oh... leakage into the public DNS means that the root nameservers have
over-provisioned by a couple orders of magnitude to deal with the crap
be in private space but leaked out and can't be resolved.
I thought the (vast) over-provisioning of the root servers was to cope with
this (leaking) is a DDoS... :)
