Is a re-boot req'd after changing 'resolv.conf' ?

I'm simply going to change 2 "nameserver" ip-addresses.

Most of what I've found re. 'resolv.conf' implies it can just be changed on-the-fly.  However, other sources (mostly upgrading info) have a reboot involved.

So -- re-boot or not? (Note: this is a static-ip box running v5.4.)
