Hmmm. I think you should look at the Cachemanager-Interface
in Version 1.0.x "IP Cache Contents"
in Version 1.1.x "DNS Server Statistics"

there you will find the 'dnsservers use histogram'

I think, if the last dnsserver is used, you should increase the
number of processes to be on the 'save side'.
