SQUID ignores /etc/resolv.conf

Hi fellows,

Is it possible that SQUID doesn't care about
nameservers listed in /etc/resolv.conf ?

We experienced the following effect:

in /etc/resolv.conf it says

nameserver a.b.c.d a.b.c.e

When 'a.b.c.d' went down SQUID couldn't do
dns lookups anymore, while the machine
itself could.

Adding the following to squid.conf:

dns_nameserver a.b.c.d a.b.c.e

with 'a.b.c.d' still down produced a delay
of about three seconds and a successful
It seems as if SQUID didn't fall back to
the second nameserver as long it's only
listed in /etc/resolf.conf.

Does anyone experience the same?

Mit freundlichen Gruessen / with kind regards
