I've found a font which could be very good for DDG: LiHei Pro !
Try it out!

A font made for Traditional Chinese? (but also contains Latin and other sets)
 
What I have found suggests that it's a quite generic sans-serif. Then we could just use another generic sans-serif.
Generic sans serifs give a quite clean and professional impression, which could look good beneath the playful duck icon. It's easy to end up with something fugly if the text is too playful.
I'd rather play with colours and shapes instead of text to give a playful impression.

I'm not a professional. I just discovered the font and it looks a bit like the current font. I also think that if the font is to crazy, it is not good, cause the icon is also funky. But this font isn't funky.
As you are the main designer, I think if you say that it is just another sans serif font, then it's ok. I think it is a little bit more clear than the current one

If I understand things correctly, it's supposed to be used by people with traditional Chinese as their system language and contains regular letters and symbols to enable the system to display these without switching font.
I don't think such a font is the best choice for a logo.
 
I'm not the main designer. I barely know anything about design.
 
I do agree that a generic sans-serif is the most clear choice (which is why it's the most common font type for any interface). But I also think the font could have a little personality (which is why Tw Cen is my favorite candidate right now).
