caching nameserver vs isp's ns server

I have a dialup ppp account. Is it better (faster) to run named as a
cacheing nameserver or just have my resolve.conf point to my isp's dns
servers? I'm noticing lots of udp connections to Root-Servers and it
seems that it refreshes these root-server connections on each dialup and
it isn't very efficient. Is the answer any different if I'm doing
ip_masq for 10 computers (1-3 on at a time when connection up)?
