 It is worth telling people to try.
 
Those who prefer command lines can try 

dig +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT

Thanks, that's helpful.

Note that the command-line version accepts the @server option,
which is useful if you have to deal with a mess of primaries, 
secondaries, forwarders, et cetera:

   dig @NS1 +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT
   dig @NS2 +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT
   dig @NS3 +short porttest.dns-oarc.net TXT

Niels Provos has a web page up with some javascript that automatically
checks if your DNS caching server has been properly patched or not.
