Maybe a combination of the two. Looking at my own use of geographical data, I 
often want to look up the closest by instance of an aptly named street. 
Sometimes not. 

If there'd be seven hits, three of which fall within the current zoom level. 
They'd be shown on the map (and I would click one of those in 70%), and a box 
at the bottom/top/.. saying "and 4 off screen". Depending on available space, 
that could be "and 4 off screen, click to zoom out" or "4 hits at 43km, 223km, 
234km and 10234km". Even with my subliminal geographical sense would be able 
to realize that for my holiday destination it's not the one at 43km, but at 
10234km, while for visiting a friend in the same country but not same province 
it's one of the 200-ish locations.

Nice idea to start a discussion like this!
