Response Pools for Traffic Director identify the IP address(es) that will be provided as answers for DNS queries, how many IP addresses and which ones will be provided in any given answer, and the behavior of the Response Pool in the event a minimum number of its IP addresses are not available.

More on Response Pools

Response Pools are the highest-level containers of your resources and each generally represents one of your points of presence: either a physical datacenter, or cloud-based POPs like an availability zone for elastic hosts or CDNs. Each Response Pool can contain any number of records of any type, though CNAMEs are mutually exclusive with other record types.
