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)

Subject: DNS resolution to Yahoo.
So I got 2 dns servers that resolve www.yahoo.com <http://www.yahoo.com/> differently.
Server A goes to 18.104.22.168. The Server B goes to 22.214.171.124. The 126.96.36.199 is a faster route for me.
How do I get Server A to resolve to 188.8.131.52?
