I think we can agree that there are lots of domain service providers that have 2, 3, maybe 5 name servers in their NS set (and those can grow without anycasting), and that there are some that really use up all that you can fit in those small packets, and want to provide even *more* resiliency. Looking at DNS, I see "lots of nameservers" primarily for root, and some gTLD/ccTLD zones. Haven't seen that for "further down" stuff (.co.uk is "sort of ccTLD" stuff). And really - I don't care who they are and what they do, but if they think it's a good thing to have more than 11 different primary name servers for whatever they are hosting, it must be important to them, and at leat to whoever is providing the funding. > but i am sure denic is very important The second largest DNS zone in the world *does* sound somewhat important to me. I don't have query numbers to compare .com and .de requests/second (which would be more useful than sheer zone size), but I'd assume that there are also plenty of request for .de domains.
