You didn't say what type of clients were consuming these so I will
just throw this out there without knowing if it would work or not.

If you configured local caching nameservers on the clients then the
local named would get all three and load balance among them.  Of
course that behavior depends upon the named.  But in any case then you
would have much reduced load on your upstream nameservers due to local
caching.  I have seen this change over lower upstream nameserver load
