The Global Traffic Director (GTD) allows you to specify different zone files in different regions of the world. Querying clients in each region will resolve the domain name based on only that region’s zone file. This becomes useful if you have servers in different regions of the world that host content for your domain. GTD speeds up response times, because querying clients are sent to the closest name server to their location.
