Interesting article on the recent godaddy downtime: GoDaddy Outage: RFC for Dummies - /dev/random. According to the article some of the simplest rules for redundancy in DNS aren't followed for godaddy hosted domains. Some of the comments do suggest there is a strong anycast infrastructure behind these servers so it might be that all eggs are in one basket but that the basket is indeed very strong.

Update: According to a statement on 11 September by the godaddy ceo on the outage routing table corruption was the cause:
The service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
