comment Why don't my server query the 2nd entry in my resolv.conf?
Our local resolver does work, does perform recursive lookups, and does cache the results. However, when I run namebench to compare the speed of a large number of lookups, the public DNS server outperforms it every time, as it already has a number of queries cached. The catch is, as you say, "lower latency responses after resolved domain names are cached." It's the "after they're cached" part that is causing the issue. Most of the domain lookups from our servers are first time lookups. That's why I'm (still) looking for a way to autoquery a 2nd DNS server after failing to resolve on the 1st.

Thanks, Daniel. This answers the question (and I will mark it as such). Do you know of a way to get the functionality I'm looking for? If nameserver #1 doesn't time out, but doesn't resolve, to query a subsequent nameserver?

It's not that the local DNS server is "too slow," it's that it's slower than the remote one based on a namebench test. It works, but I want things to work faster. :)
