I can also have a single DNS
server give 192.0.2.80 out to queries sourced from a US IP Address,
198.51.100.80 for queries sourced from a German IP Address and
203.0.113.80 to queries sourced from a Chinese address (djbdns has a
module for this for example).


I have never did such setup, but I assume it works as you say. I wonder how
it finds a US based system from IP quickly (since it's DNS server)?

Here is *one* method if you obtain a feed of geo-ip data from someone like Maxmind:

Several DNS providers have different methods and different geo-ip data vendors.
