They get around nscd because nscd is not a DNS, it just replaces some

Being slightly petty, well, yes there is, but doesn't make a lot of
sense. Any application can talk to any nameserver it wants to, it
doesn't _have_ to look at /etc/resolv.conf.

Oh, well, absolutely, but normal applications are not going to do that :-)
