Assymetric routing L3/VZ (FIOS)

Is anyone else seeing this? DC - DFW back to DC? AFAIK, Verizon-GNI is a 
customer of L3, so no weird peering issues should be afoot. This adds 
about 40ms to the R/T time.  The path leaving Verizon-GNI (FIOS) goes 
(seemingly) DC-DC and has lower times (<5ms) unidirectionally.

Tracing the route to pool-173-79-242-218.washdc.fios.verizon.net 
(173.79.242.218                                  )

We're opening a ticket with them, but figured NANOG is an often better 
place for these resolutions.
