Good day everyone.  We are building out a new authoritative DNS infrastructure and my systems engineering director had a question I didn't necessarily know the answer to.  Could someone be so kind to point me in the right direction?

" F Root, operated by ISC, has 2 "global" nodes (one in SF and one in Pal Alto); and the remaining 44 nodes are dubbed "local".

What functions do the global servers perform that the local ones do not.  I.e., what is the functional difference between the two? "
