My cluster is all on one LAN. I'd expect geographically diverse recursive
servers to have diverse userbases with less correlation between queries on
usefully short timescales, and coupled with the extra latency across a WAN
I'd expect peer lookaside queries to be less likely to benefit.

Wow, cool, thanks!
