Earthlink's broken DNS affecting Tor nodes?

I'm currently running a Tor node (phrenograph) on an Earthlink DSL connection, and they've recently started returning a "help" site's IP instead of NXDOMAIN when a DNS lookup is requested for a nonexistent site. See [1] for more. Should I be concerned about this change's effect on the Tor network, since presumably DNS lookups I do are no longer perfect? If it does have a detrimental effect, is there a way to block DNS lookups in my exit policy?
