Instead of using a caching DNS proxy daemon querying Google's public DNS
servers, I recommend you run a recursing caching resolver on your
Postfix host, such as PowerDNS recursor (I've been using it for years
without any issues). There are a few reasons for this:
1. Spamhaus refuses dnsbls queries from Google DNS servers, and most
public DNS servers, because of volume. Thus you can't query the Zen
list using this proxy setup. Other dnsbl operators may block Google DNS
2. Latency is greatly reduced as your DNS queries are direct instead of
proxied. On a high volume server latency is critical as it limits
3. If you have DNS related problems at some point in the future, you
have complete control and troubleshooting ability. If using Google or
another DNS server via proxy you're at that operator's mercy. And there
is always the possibility that Google may modify results in some way, or
respond inaccurately due to some policy or other reason.
It's best to run your own resolver and do direct queries.
