with the global redundancy of DO, does it make ANY sense to operate my own DNS servers from a security/failover point of view?

some more detail: I have all my droplets with DO, so a separate DNS server on DO’s network doesn’t make sense, right?

It’s probably best to go with a well known provider that has failover support such as Dyn, that way you’ll get reliability on both fronts.
