Yahoo uses akamai technology (bgp path analysis) to determine what content server is "closest" to a given host and 
bases its' dns response on that data.  You could contact Akamai and, explain your network, and see if they can make the 
necessary adjustments, or if you are large enough ask them to drop a couple of servers in your site.  (or they may want 
you to send them a BGP feed)
