My results, not surprisingly, listed my personal DNS server as the fastest (by far). What threw me for a loop is that my ISP's servers were a solid second. OpenDNS was third with Google pretty far down the line. Since my ISP likes to hijack the name resolution, I have resorted to using OpenDNS as my forwarder and secondary DNS server.

Object lesson is that location plays a big role and YMMV.

Thanks everyone for posting a list of tools to check DNS speeds!
