Take a look at /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf, and you should see an entry
like the following:
#prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
Uncomment that, and you should be golden, with localhost trumping any
remote DNS servers.
I do something similar, but with an "append" so that I get the benefit
of internal domains while I'm in the office, but with a fallback to my
unbound instance in the event of a flaky resolver.
Man, I love how everyone is like "In my blog, which is
a blog on the Internet, which you all may be interested
in visiting, I talked about what I am now saying here."
