I've been using Comcast for five or six years now without a problem!  YMMV.

I could set up my own DNS server but what would be the point?  A hosts 
file provides the addresses of the nodes on my RFC-1918 private network. 
The rest of the world, I would have to get from Comcast in any case. 
Certainly, I could cache the addresses I use frequently on a DNS of my 
own but Comcast already provides this service.
