I'm almost embarrassed to bother you with this - it's such a small issue 
- but still, I guess we need to know about everything big or small...

I have 3 DNS servers set up in my network connection, and when I go to 
connection information it shows me the Primary, Secondary and *Ternary* 
DNS ips. I'm sorry to be pedantic, but “/Ternary/” means “having three 
parts”. Operators in C# can be unary, binary or /ternary/ – they take 
one, two or three operands. “/Tertiary/” means “third in order”.

On this basis, it should be  Primary, Secondary and Tertiary (not 
Ternary) DNS. If you would like to argue that it's an operand with 3 
parts, then it should be Unary, Binary and Ternary DNS, however, the DNS 
servers are hit in order so I think P/S/T is correct.
