DNS servers store information about the DNS namespace and use the information to answer queries from DNS clients. The size of the DNS zone data, how many DNS clients you have, and where these clients are physically located all impact your DNS server topology.
The DNS designer in your organization designs DNS servers that enable you to create an effective DNS data distribution and update topology while minimizing query and zone transfer network traffic. The DNS administrators in your organization manage and maintain your DNS servers. Figure 3.6 shows the process for designing DNS servers.
