Use 'tethereal -n -i ppp0 port 53'

to find out what is going on on the wire, you'll see DNS queries and
responses, and then see which servers are queried. Your resolv.conf is
probably not updated, but I'm not sure because I don't fully understand
your setup.

You can try whether DHCLIENT_RELEASE_BEFORE_QUIT=yes in
/etc/sysconfig/network/dhcp and 'rcnetwork restart' helps.
