dnsmasq is for a bunch of different things. Best depends on what you want to do. Who says you are doing anything wrong? If you can only reach their DNS, then it suggests that they are blocking others. Is that a problem for you? you should just configure your system locally correctly and then whatever works in /etc/resolv.conf will be picked up by dnsmasq automatically, so these two things don't have much in common really.
