For what it's worth, the fastest public DNS servers that it found that are
reported as 100% "available and working" are (in order of speed, fastest to

ns2.om.cox.net -
ns1.chg.pap.net -
ns1.chi.pnap.net -
ns2.ok.cox.net -
ns2.dns.rcn.net -

There were two Cox.net DNS servers that were faster, but they did "bad
domain names are intercepted by provider".  For completeness they are:

cdns2.cox.net -
cdns1.cox.net -
