Thinking about this, the only solution that seems remotely possible is
to let the customer have the DNS server on his premises. That way all
queries that come from cache could be fast enough. Those it needs to
resolve from the Internet, will take longer time.

The next question is who shall maintain that server on his premises? All
sorts of questions come to mind.
