Well, now; that depends on just where you are. From my home
machine,  works  ok,  but  it  has a response time
that's typically around 90-100 ms (although unless  they've
moved it, it's only a couple miles from here physically). I
know of a couple of MIT nameservers that give me  10-20  ms
response  times, although they're physically maybe 12 miles
away.  But for whatever reasons, the  MIT  nameservers  are
only 6 hops from me while is 13 hops.

YMMV, of course.

I've never found a systematic way to locate  nearby  and/or
fast  nameservers.   I've asked a few times on a few lists.
Sure would be useful.
