Removal of input field that apparently served little purpose is a bug?

If I have the domain name in resolv.conf and ping my firewall, I get:

# ping firewall
PING firewall(firewall.jknott.net (fd48:1a37:2160:0:216:17ff:fea7:f2d3))
56 data bytes
64 bytes from firewall.jknott.net (fd48:1a37:2160:0:216:17ff:fea7:f2d3):
icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.254 ms
64 bytes from firewall.jknott.net (fd48:1a37:2160:0:216:17ff:fea7:f2d3):

64 bytes from firewall.jknott.net (fd48:1a37:2160:0:216:17ff:fea7:f2d3):

If I remove the domain name:

# ping firewall
ping: firewall: Name or service not known

So, the local domain must be specified for local domain searches to work
on host name only.  For as long as I've been working with TCP/IP, that
was done with the domain name box.  Now, the work around is to use
domain search.  Is this now the "official" way?
