My question above is asking Mark how you guarantee the user/application selects the A record closest to them and only 
use the other A record when the closer one is unavailable.

I understand - my point was that folks using a GSLB-type solution would generally include availability probing in the 
GSLB stack, so that a given instance won't be included in answers if it's locally unavailable (obviously, the GSLB 
can't know about all path elements between the querying resolver and the desired server/service).
