I am a UK based company with primarily UK based customers. The webserver is located in the UK, but I am looking for a good DNS host. All the good ones seem to be in the USA (offering auto failover etc).

A) If a USA based company hold my DNS records what will this do to latency for people performin lookups for websites, mail etc.

B) Also what impact does that have if i change an entry at the USA host? Will it be instant or will there be other root servers that will ahve to update.
