Using PDNSD here. URL is http://home.t-online.de/home/Moestl/

pdnsd is a proxy dns server with permanent caching (the cache contents are
written to hard disk on exit) that is designed to cope with unreachable or
down dns servers (for example in dial-in networking). pdnsd can be used 
with applications that do dns lookups, eg on startup, and can't be 
configured to change that behaviour, to prevent the often minute-long hangs
(or even crashes) that result from stalled dns queries.  Some Netscape 
Navigator versions for Unix, for example, expose this behaviour. And it's 
IPv6 capable.

Breath of fresh air and it's GPLed.
