pppd(8) has not had any serious work done on it for over two years, see
There was some talk in -net of dropping support for it altogether.
The KPPP authors have so far declined to consider adding support for
FreeBSD's ppp(8), due perhaps to their primarily Linux orientation.
I suggest instead using either ppp(8) - which is extensively supported
by the FreeBSD Handbook and in the mailing lists - or the net/mpd5 port,
which uses in-kernel netgraph modules. Both support fetching upstream
DNS addresses. I happily used ppp(8) for 10 years, but now prefer mpd.
