[squid-users] Force DNS queries over TCP?

My ISP have started forcing DNS queries to pass through their own DNS
server, which appears to have many issues (can't resolve twitter.com for
one).  I won't bore the list with my conversations with them over that part.

They are not actively blocking TCP DNS queries so I have a workaround.

Recognising that DNS over TCP is not an ideal solution....

1. Can Squid be configured to use TCP by default for DNS inquiries?  If
not consider this a feature request :)
2. Is there a DNS caching server that can do this instead (BIND9 doesn't
seem to have it as an option)

Any help appreciated.
