The idea of a secondary DNS server is that if the main server goes down 
(or the whole subnet), people can still reach the rest of the *.postgresql.org 
domains (especially the mirrors). It also looks as though there are still 
no secondary DNS servers set up for postgresql.org, where "secondary" means a 
server not in the same subnet or geographical area. It would be nice to 
see another server set up; myself and others have an outstanding offer 
to help do this.
