All D0wn servers but also some other. Theres a reason for this?

I have the same experience with the Dns-crypt log file. Seems I get a constant error retrieving server certificates?

Try to use another DNSCrypt provider or just replace DNSCrypt with DoH/DoT:

I know this does not answer your question, but I recommend dnscrypt-proxy 2. It's faster, can be redundant, and secure.

Hell. The problem seem that some server does not work. Some servers work and some not. I don't know if it is a issue compatibility between this some servers and openwrt or the plugin or other.

Some servers have status pages like this.

I'd second this, I've struggled enough with DNSCrypt so that when I've discovered https_dns_proxy I've written a small WebUI for it. And between Google and Cloudflare servers I've had zero DNS downtime (knock on wood).
