Generally no, except in a few corner cases (globally anycasted
destination for example).
The usual case would be: When Teredo client C (behind NAT) tries to
contact the native destination D it sends an ICMPv6 echo request to the
destination D through its own configured Teredo server S. S forwards the
packet like any other packet to D. D replies back with ICMPv6 echo reply
and sends it to the nearest Teredo relay R (all Teredo relays advertise
2001::/32 in BGP). R cannot contact C directly because C is behind
NAT/Firewall/whatever, so it tags the packet with its own IPv4 address
and forwards it to the Teredo server S the client is connected to. S
can forward the packet to C because it has an existing state already.
Now C can contact R from its side and start communication with D.
So unless you try to contact a globally anycasted destination where the
nodes use different relays for the way back, the Teredo server is not
involved in the relay selection.

I'm involved with satellite communication, which has 500-550ms RTT, not
that much more than my current path to you. Of course that affects IPv4
as well, and I can tell you that most webpages are not that nice to use
anymore with that latency.

You could have installed a local Teredo relay, this setup (local
content, Teredo clients accessing it) is one of the cases where that
