    I was playing around a bit, and I noticed that Xerobank uses DNS in the United States, no matter where your exit node is. Is this true?

    Doesn't it mean that anybody (meaning A government) with a warrant for the USA could force xerobank to reveal DNS queries for specific addresses? If this is true, the content of browsing would be protected because going through different countries, but not the DNS queries.
    And DNS queries carry a lot of information...

    The DNS requests are secure from prying eyes. The DNS queries exist inside the XeroBank network, and are thus encrypted, and have zero logs, regardless of server location, which I am thinking may be reverse-proxied in a different location, I can't recall at the moment. The answer to the question is no, a warrant wouldn't force anything, nor would we accept one from the USA.
