Just to be sure.
When my server start working and have clear memory and for example
client need go to My server ask root servers. After
follow the tree, server got answer and send this to the client. Can
bind support internal short-cut (hash table) to speed up this request
for another client who ask about or I can only short
response time when I am authoritative server and have a lot of domains
using acache?
