Bind DNS 9 topology option

Hello All

Can I influence the root server lookup, so that the client's recursive lookup will search into the root servers those are nearer to ISP's DNS server location.

Does this happens by default ?

Whether topology options of bind is useful in this scenario ?

Waiting for reply

This sounds like homework. Have you done any reading to investigate this?
