Absolutely - whether one resolves via the root servers, or opendns, a
local caching server is a must.  The question is just to what does it
point.  A caching server still has to get it's data from somewhere.  I
can't think of any good reason not to be running a caching server
though*, since named is included on pretty much any disto and djb may be
as well...
