Even though my workstation is configured to use DNS server 1 first, and
DNS server 2 second, in certain instances it is using server 2. This is
based on the logging at the NAMED screen on the server (NAMED is loaded
with the verbose switch). I have a suspicion this is because at some
point server 2 was the last server to provide my workstation with a valid
response to a query, and so from then on my workstation queries server 2
first. Am I guessing correctly? If so, is there some way to force my
workstation to try server 1 first always? I'm thinking that if we load
balance by configuring groups of workstations to hit different DNS
servers, should one DNS server become unavailable then from that point on
everyone will be hitting just one DNS server.
