I think this problem has little to do with Cerny's conjecture. There the problem is to find a word that works for every pair of states. Here it is enough to show that the word will work whp. for any pair of states. An exponential lower bound on $f$ can be given as follows. Take a DFA whose states are $v_1,\ldots,v_k$ and the transition function is such that ...
