You don't need these rules at all, if you're allowing state
ESTABLISHED,RELATED packets.  The packets coming from your nameservers
(in response to your DNS requests) will be allowed via connection
tracking.  The above rules would be used in the case when you want to
allow incoming connections, which you probably don't need to accept
from your nameserver.
