Round-robin refers to the order of the answers in a response. To see
this, do "dig yahoo.com a" several times and you'll see that the A
records are in a different order each time.
It sounds like you're talking about the order in which it selects
nameservers to send recursive queries to. That is *not* round-robin.
It remembers the response time of previous queries, and prefers servers
that respond quicker.
