Slower routing of the DNS traffic

Hello good people of NextDNS, when running a test on https://ping.nextdns.io I see there are many faster servers than the selected one, Is there a reason or a methodology behind that? I mean based on what the server is chosen? the protocol, latency, geographical location ...etc

I'm using DoH through the browser settings of Firefox, please let me know if you need any addition information.

Also is there a way to manually choose a closer server by specifying the server in the endpoint?
