Section 1 says:

However, this does not scale well (to the number of DNS servers
worldwide or the number of content providers worldwide) and does
react to intermittent network path outages.

It should say:

However, this does not scale well (to the number of DNS servers
worldwide or the number of content providers worldwide) and does
not react to intermittent network path outages.

Notes:

The introduction makes a case against a whitelist of DNS servers because it does not scale well and is not flexible.
DNS server whitelists indeed to not react to intermittent network outages, so the only logical sentence to form is to state that they do not.
The "not" has been omitted, reversing the logical meaning of the sentence.
