EDNS CLIENT-SUBNET (ECS) needs support on the authoritative side (server) as well as the resolver side (client).

The public BIND 9.11.x does not have resolver support for ECS. We have written support for resolver ECS for BIND, but due to contractual reasons, we are unable to release it right now in a public version.

For those who want it, we are able to release it in the subscription version and it will be shipped in that capacity sometime soon. The feature is ready for production use.
