I'm not sure how closely DNS requests correlate to bandwidth

Certainly there are many clients that do a single DNS query on startup /
initiate and keep querying the same IP from then on.

It might balance out over time, I don't have enough data to make an
assertion :-)

A backup pool with enough resources is a good idea, I'd be happy to have
an option to nominate servers outside of a region as available as extra
capacity for that region, otherwise the larger regional or global pool
would be a better option.
