Funny.  From the original description, I was thinking a solution would  
be for there to be a intra-caching cluster protocol to insert a cache  
entry into a resolver.  That is, when a resolver in a cluster gets an  
answer, it pushes that answer to the other resolvers in the cluster  
(after it sends the answer back to the stub resolver to minimize end  
user latency, of course).

Not sure it's worth the effort though...
