I assume you mean 'lmerTest' above, the CRAN package originally
mostly by Rune Haubo Christensen

I think its Satterthwaite (and Kenward-Roger via CRAN package
'pbkrtest') 'df' approximation computations have become quite
reliable, after Rune's recent refurbishing, see also

-- as always at least as long as you refrain from fitting much
   overparametrized models -- which you should even though some
   authors tell you to do so.
