Best at being a DNS server?

Okay, not a problem for good number of users here.

If you want build a heavy-duty DNS server and want best OS for it. Gentoo is the choice.

How often do admins outside of datacenters and major ISP have to build a heavy-duty DNS server? Not very often at all.
Ivy Bridge i5-3570K@4.0Ghz, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, 2x4GiB of PC3-12800, EVGA 660Ti, Corsair CX-600 and Fractal Refined R4 (W). Kentsfield Q6600@3Ghz, HD 4850 2x2GiB PC2-6400, Gigabyte EP45-DS4P, OCZ Modstream 700W, and PC-7B.

It seems to me that this test indicates that all the performance tweaks that Gentoo has can actually offer something. No more can anybody say it isn't worth the effort.

That's really, really stretching things. Performance isn't exactly the prime concern here or most anywhere, really - maintainability and reliability matter more. A couple of percent here and there isn't really significant. We're only talking about a 6.5% difference in a limit that, in operation, we should never approach anyway. The extra boost is nice and all, but I wouldn't call it more than a tiebreaker. Whether it's "worth the effort" is yet another consideration that this doesn't address at all. If the other operating systems do the job sufficiently and require less effort to administer well, then the effort is hardly definitively "worth it". I'd be far more inclined to go with a better-tested/validated and more mature platform.
