It happens rather rarely. Only when you mistype or try to access a
non-existent site etc. I used it for a few months - it wasn't intrusive.

Having said that, I'm sure there are alternatives. As far as I know, most
DNS servers should be open, so you could use a different set of DNS IPs
anyway.

For example, when I was on dial-up I used the DNS from my previous ISP
for months without noticing that I had not changed it... And a local
sysadmin in our LUG regularly recommends a particular ISPs DNS to people
who are not with that ISP.
