Ok. I see the point of using ttdnsd-like functionality to supplement
what the Tor DNS resolver is able to achieve itself. See our page
about this issue on the Tails wiki in case you want to understand the
place I'm speaking from:


I also see the point of not granting one (and maybe a few) company/ies
the power to decide example.com does not exist for TorDNSd (and Tails)
users. Hence my past, present and future questions:

How exactly does TorDNSd deal with multiple remote DNS servers?

What issues could be possibly caused by using multiple remote DNS
recursive servers by default in TorDNSd?

What additional recursive servers would you consider worth adding to
the default TorDNSd configuration?
