What do you mean by best? –  waiwai933 Mar 7 '10 at 6:36
    
best meaning, its most likely the most compatible. The dns server which matches the pc and the network –  Ieyasu Sawada Mar 7 '10 at 6:38

there is no such thing as "the best DNS server". Use the one from your ISP or OpenDNS. –  Snark Mar 7 '10 at 7:32

Execute the nameserver-benchmark and see what's best for you:

@Nam Gi VU: don't know why you bring up "dnsbenchmark", never said anything about "dnsbenchmark". i talked about "namesaver-benchmark" ... –  akira May 8 '11 at 16:13

DNS Benchmark will tell you which is the fastest.

as for high performance: running your own nameserver will always be the best DNS server for your working set.
