I've been using djbdns dnscache.  You just need the cache startup to also
invoke "echo 'nameserver' | resolvconf -a lo" and it always uses
local cache first, drops to next priority if cache is broken or stopped.
You can also stuff a custom script in /etc/resolvconf/update.d that will be
able to take the prioritized nameservers and update your cache to use them
as upstream caches.  (I've an example script for dnscache, but it expects
it to be running under the full daemontools+tcpserver setup whereas I run
it as a simple standalone service) ;)
