I recently started using zoneedit.com for a personal domain.  The price 
was right.  So far they seem decent enough.

My registrar, 1&1/Schlunde offers secondary service but it never worked 
and the support was just horrible.  Three reps in a row claimed that their 
slave not answering for my domain was "normal" because "our server takes 
over when yours fails" and the secondaries "don't normally answer replies 
since they are secondary servers".  Yeah, whatever.  About a week after 
moving to zoneedit, they replied that an admin had "fixed" the problem.
