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?

After browsing answer is routing
Root server are collocated and routing is done through anycast method.
So by Default queries goes to near dns server.
