GSS Domain List & Source Address List

Unanswered Question

My question is, How does the GSS handle multiple DNS Rules, with the same Domain List, but using different Source Address Lists?

In the test environment we have two DNS Rules each using the same Domain list (i.e. answering for the same web addresses), but one has the default “Anywhere” Source Address List, and the other uses a specific Source Address List (there are two IP's defined, IP1 and IP2). Each of these DNS Rules have different Answers defined in them.

I wondering if the GSS would ever respond to IP1 or IP2 with the answers from the DNS Rule with the “Anywhere” Source list? Or does the GSS respond with the more / most specific answer first?

GSS uses the most specific source IP address when applying the DNS rules...

Rule with "Anywhere" source address should come into play only if rule with specific address is a miss for the incoming traffic.
