Well, you can use any openly recursing DNS server: many won't respond to your query because you're not on their allowed list of machines (trying a few at random, some ISPs block, some don't).

Apparently the Google DNS service does return proper NXDOMAINs, and doesn't redirect you to advertising (that's their USP over OpenDNS). Oliver.
