For the Terminal-Phobic, there is a graphical way to do this.

In Preferences, select the Network pane. The active connection should display all settings, including DNS server.

Note that some home routers are configured so that connected computers see that router as the DNS server. In that case, you might have to log into your router and find out the IP address of your real DNS server.

An alternative terminal command that's easier to remember is nslookup. That will give you a > prompt at which you type server. That will return your primary name server. You can also use the prompt to test DNS lookups for example:

XXXXXXX:~ steve$ nslookup
> www.google.com
Server: 192.168.1.254
Address: 192.168.1.254#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.google.com canonical name = www.l.google.com.
Name: www.l.google.com
Address: 64.233.183.104
Name: www.l.google.com
Address: 64.233.183.147
Name: www.l.google.com
Address: 64.233.183.99
