I'm wondering if the stub caches catch the queries that would otherwise
cause a prefetch, so instead of a newly hot cache in the recursive server,
the stubs encounter a high latency refill. But as you say, the unlucky
slow queries are probably not any more likely than they are without stub

Berwick upon Tweed to Whitby: Variable 3 or less, becoming west 3 or 4 for a
time. Smooth or slight. Occasional rain at first. Moderate becoming good.
