Well the easiest Free DNS service I have found so far is:

DNS Made Easy

They give you complete flexibility over what records you want.  Has
a great site with lots of help.  Plus some basic tutorials if you are new
to DNS overall.

But back to the list topic:

The main list (where all lists come from, even the google list comes
from here) is kept at the dmoz (The Open Directory Project.)

Most of all of these services offer what you need. Some are easier than
others. Some are free. Our friends at Nominum offer
some great products.

Basically, if you can not get what you need with one of these guys you should
rethink your DNS needs. ;-)
