If you are talking about a caching-only DNS server, it's more than worth
And it's literally this easy( on a fedora based distro )
[root at ord-mandell ~]# yum install caching-nameserver
[root at ord-mandell ~]# /etc/init.d/named start
[root at ord-mandell ~]# chkconfig named on
[root at ord-mandell ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
If you are talking about Authoritive DNS then use something like
opendns.com or everydns.net
