DNS Server Addresses

While cleaning out some ATT support paper work, I found a note that said that my tcp/ip.ip4-> properties should be set to 1)"obtain an IP address automatically  2)Use the following DNS server addresses should be dotted: Preferred 68.94.156.1 alternate 68.94.157.1  I checked my settings and I have no DNS server addresses entered, but I always have Internet connection.  I wonder if this is an old note from before I went with U-verse?

 Those are the default that you'd be assigned with either straight AT&T DSL or U-verse service; there is no need to manually enter them on any host that "automatically" gets an address (DHCP).
