#prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
Note the semi-colon at the end of the comma-seperated list.
prepend domain-name-servers 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199;
Now, restart networking to make the changes take effect;
Check your /etc/resolv.conf file, it should now only list the OpenDNS servers.
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
