Time to move from the mechanics and policy of DNS replication to a new topic. Within the global DNS there are two roles that a server can play: ones that hold data - nameservers, and ones that fetch that data for clients - resolvers. Nameservers need to provide their data to the entire Internet whereas resolvers serve a small set of client systems.
