Query: Namebench is showing google.com hijacking by IPs belonging to Rogers, should I be concerned?

I'm running Google DNS at the router level and on my PC, and I decided to run Google's namebench tool today to make sure that it's my fastest option (I ran an ICSI report and it said my DNS was slow to resolve).

This result came up, and I checked the IPs listed. As far as I can tell, they all belong to my Rogers:

  1. www.google.com is hijacked: 66.185.84.152, 66.185.84.183, 66.185.84.178, 66.185.84.167, 66.185.84.157, 66.185.84.187, 66.185.84.172, 66.185.84.173, 66.185.84.177, 66.185.84.153, 66.185.84.168, 66.185.84.158, 66.185.84.182, 66.185.84.163, 66.185.84.148, 66.185.84.162
  2. google.com appears incorrect: 24.156.131.25, 24.156.131.54, 24.156.131.35, 24.156.131.34, 24.156.131.24, 24.156.131.44, 24.156.131.50, 24.156.131.59, 24.156.131.30, 24.156.131.45, 24.156.131.29, 24.156.131.49, 24.156.131.39, 24.156.131.20, 24.156.131.40, 24.156.131.55

This is on 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Same sort of results (different IPs, all belonging to Rogers) happen on the Rogers DNS AND OpenDNS.

This does not appear to be an issue with Primus', Radiant's, or Telus' DNS servers.

Should I be concerned? This seems shady, but perhaps there's a simpler reason? Has anyone else gotten the same results?

Thanks for your time.
