A nitpick here: the terms "master" and "slave" only apply in regards 
to authoritative name service. When you are doing recursion, this 
distinction is irrelevant.

And no, this is not odd at all. This is typical for many or most busy 
domains: they do a rudimentary form of load balancing through DNS 
results. Nothing interesting here.
