No. I don't need that.

Our mail server has *one* locally installed caching DNS proxy. 
That *system* is configured to use that one proxy, so it uses the 
same proxy for DNSBLs and all other DNS queries.

The caching proxy forwards queries to our three normal name servers.

Wether *you* need a different setup is something I don't know.
