Dns is a pretty lightweight service, so the recommendation even 20 years ago

means 99% of dns lookups will be handled at local lan speeds. It also means
the cache of names/ips is shared by all your machines.

Sounds like a good job for a couple of raspberry pi's (primary &
secondary dns). Each of them fed from its own recharchable and PSU.

Actually, it's a good job for any computer that's running all the time.
My firewall/router is an old i586 computer running openSUSE 11.4.
That's where ai run Dnscache, along with some other services.
