Hi all,
I have a dream: deploy a DNS Anycast infrastructure.
I have tra to use: BIND with OpensBSD, Quagga and Zebra for OSPF routing.
I think that the best way is to use BGP with an AS registered.
Someone have experience abut this thema ? Someone has already deployed a similar structure for DNS services ?

ospf and is-is are just interior routing protocols.  you should be able to use the concept of the ospf application and apply that to your is-is configuration.

The whole point of anycast is to announce a single network from multiple locations (via BGP) and withdraw that announcement from any single location if that server's DNS is not answering.
