There is no special SRV record for discovery of a bytestreams proxy
instance (as there is for, say, STUN). Instead, the proxy is discovered
via XMPP service discovery (XEP-0030). However, to improve the
experience of finding bytestreams proxies over server-to-server
federation it is good to add a normal xmpp-server SRV record for the
proxy component/module, such as:

_xmpp-server._tcp.proxy.example.com. 40 IN SRV 20 0 5269 foo.example.com
