+1 on this.

We moved from an all anycast resolver setup to an anycast+dnsdist,
resolver backend setup the way Bert described it.

I would add that with dnsdist and caching enabled you don't need as many
backend resolvers. 90% of the queries can be answered from dnsdist
caches. So in our case, we have multiple dnsdist instances across the
swiss NREN network but only few backend resolvers.
