Forget your ISP's DNS servers and run your own.  I use bind on my
firewall, and have the DHCP server hand out the firewall address as the
DNS server.

Not what you asked originally, but it works like a charm, especially when
Comcast's DNS servers suddenly stop working.

Try running /usr/sbin/named to get started.

Otherwise, man named.
