Geo-DNS providers?

I have one domain that may be accessed by people from all over the world. I would like to set up servers throughout the world and have people connect to the ip that's closest to them, even though they are all typing the same domain name.

What is this concept called and how does it work? Do I have to make special agreements with multiple DNS server providers? Anyone know any provider that offers this type of service.
