I've been using nettica for this purpose for years now. Reliable, fast 
and easy to use (even 'white labelled').

BTW vps.net operates a very good DNS service for their customers also. 
Can't remember who its powered by but it's one of the big global 
providers, so service is as good and free for customers.
