My understanding is SmartDNS will still be based on your ISP's speed but VPN will be subject to the server cause virtually your location changed so the routes are different already. Maybe while streaming not much difference but downloads and browsing can feel the difference.
yup...
for smart dns, the config is as follows

SmartDNs
Your ISP -> Netflix

VPN
Your server -> VPN server-> netflix

Never ever use VPN solely just for Streaming..... There are other option if you just wish to stream netflix/hulu....
