If you have connectivity problems to the rest of Internet, you'll find 
out in short order in the normal course of everyday operations, without 
the need for a background task that you have forgotten about, and so 
obviously don't check the results of, continually running.

If you have connectivity problems to parts of Internet, a connectivity 
check with one of the ICANN "." content DNS servers isn't necessarily 
going to tell you much about them.
