It depends on so many things (for instance, how the underlying OS
handles UDP and IP) that I suggest that you benchmark yourself on your
machines. And publishing qps results for caching servers is much more
difficult than for authoritative servers since it depends on the cache
state *and* on remote name servers.

If you have a "very high traffic networks", you certainly also have a
lab and a team for such benchmarks.
