I set up my own caching nameserver.
I used djbdns (dnscache). Some guys like it some not.
Any opinion which is best (or at least very good) to use
for caching dns

Not exactly, but you can have the dhclient rewrite the dhcpd.conf when
it gets new nameservers.  I used to do this; I ran it from
dhclient-exit-hooks, and it was a simple sed(1) command.  For a long
time, I've been running my own local caching nameserver, and directing
the DHCP clients to that, but I could dig out my old script if you
have trouble with it.  Although I would suggest you also consider
setting up your own local caching nameserver; the caching behaviour
can be a noticeable speed boost.
