Steve, I decided to add the line to rc.conf and then shutdown... have done 
so many anyhow and didn't want to get stuck whenever I did reboot/shutting 
down again not knowing what to do.

Anyway it didn't work on restart, but then when I issued the route add 
default cmd dns is working. So I added the line to my /usr/local/etc/rc.d 
and on restart everything's copasthetic. Why it didn't do the trick from 
rc.conf though...
