Anycast (one-to-many) is an internet routing protocol which is used to assign the same IP addresses to more than one server on different geographical locations. Anycast DNS service is a new generation DNS service which is distributed throughout more than one geographically dispersed servers.

Anycast DNS is a traffic routing algorithm used for the speedy delivery of website content that advertises individual IP addresses on multiple nodes. User requests are directed to specific nodes based on such factors as the capacity and health of your server, as well as the distance between it and the website visitor.
