I'm not sure if I phrased my question correctly. It's not about
redundancy, but about keeping the queries to root/g(TLD) name servers
to a minimum.

In your example, if was the resolver that just came up again
after a restart, it wouldn't return a failure for a query that it has
not yet cached. Or perhaps I just didn't understand your answer.
