Not auto connecting to ultra low servers

Hi, I use the NextDNS CLI on my M1 Mac. For the past 2 days am getting connected to Singapore DNS Servers instead of the nearest ultra low latency servers.

Output of ping.nextdns.io

Output of diag tool

Welcome to NextDNS network diagnostic tool.

This tool will download a small binary to capture latency and routing information
regarding the connectivity of your network with NextDNS. In order to perform a
traceroute, root permission is required. You may therefore be asked to provide
your password for sudo.

The source code of this tool is available at https://github.com/nextdns/diag

OS: Big Sur 11.3
