However if you structure your secondaries in a 'calling tree' format,
(IE Jeff feeds 2 secondaries, those 2 feed 4 more, etc), then his
bandwidth requirements are minimized.

In the secondary named.conf, you list a superior secondary first
in the 'masters' record (as well as other alternate sources).
Then it will try the various alteratives in the order listed.
This reduces Jeff's bandwidth demands and makes the system more
robust (alternative paths) at the cost of a bit more complexity
and slight delay in update propogation.
