    The gateway I advise that you add the ip (probably the internal ip of the router or NAT modem)to trusted zone.The ip's of the DNS servers if you add them to the trusted zone it improves your connection to the internet as eases the domain resolution.If you don't have connection problems you may skip it and if problems start happening like loosing the connection after to be long time in stand by for example add them at that time.Your LAN should be added to trusted zone if you want to share resources among LAN computers (of course you may keep it at internet zone and add the ip's or better yet the host of the LAN computers to trusted zone).

    Is there a risk adding the DNS servers to the trusted Zone?

    None. it is a direct connection from your machine to the DNS servers of your ISP. It that sense there was no other server or other party or threats between this connection and so there is no security risk.
