I'm not sure how accurate this really is, but:
Basically, it helps pass the client IP upstream so the CDN can make a better guess to which cluster to direct you to, instead of the query-source IP of the recursive they are talking to.
We've seen poor CDN performance as a result of them only being granular to a /24 scope, as well as folks using the 'wrong' dns servers and being sent to CDN nodes a few networks or continents away.
