From a command line:
for /f %a in (c:\servers.txt) do ping %a -n 1 >> results.txt

or in a batch file:

@echo off
for /f %%a in (c:\servers.txt) do ping %%a -n 1 >> results.txt

Batch file that creates a csv:
@echo off
set ServerFile=Servers.txt
set LogFile=%~dpn0.csv
set CsvDelim=,
if exist "%LogFile%" del "%LogFile%"
for /f %%a in ('type "%ServerFile%"') do (
	echo Processing %%a ...
	ping -4 -n 4 %%a | find /i "TTL" >NUL
	if errorlevel 1 (
		>>"%LogFile%" echo %%a%CsvDelim%Error 
		echo ... offline.
	) else (
		echo ... responding.
		>>"%LogFile%" echo %%a%CsvDelim%Success

it works with less code
@echo off
del -f out.txt
REM cd "c:\your location if you need"
REM ping.txt store all your server name
for /f "tokens=* delims=" %%x in (c:\ping.txt) do ping %%x>>out.txt
start  notepad.exe "out.txt"

You can use MS Powershell to do this (and it's free).  Here are a couple of links to show you where people are already doing exactly the same thing you are trying.

It is included in the Windows Management Framework download here.
