If you are using pppd, it gets your dns from your service provider and if that dns is down, your service provider usually will automatically connect you to a secondary dns.
Anything that is not related to connecting to you isp, isn't needed. When pppd connects to it's host, it get all the information from the host that is needed... I believe that all the other stuff like:
set ifaddr other gatewaying information isn't needed... if you read the man on pppd, it will tell you what the basics are for connecting to a host, and what's needed if you are a host with a client trying to connect to you...
P.S. There's also examples in the man page!
