There's a daemon called nscd which can cache dns. Simply run it. First make sure the file /etc/nscd.conf has the line "enable-cache hosts yes". There are other dns caching programs out there like dnsmasq.

So does it mean that after installing system, there is no DNS cache daemon on board and it must be installed additionally ?

Most popular distributions already come with this configured. On my debian squeeze nscd is always automatically setup during the install.
