some VPNs push routes, including default routes, and nameservers and
search paths, but it's up to the client on how to handle it. Some of
these will set /etc/resolv.conf, etc.
What *kind* of VPN are you talking about? OpenVPN? PPTP? L2TP?
I generally prefer dnscache to BIND, and the mechanism for selective
resolution is straightforward.
Some large companies, HP included, just publish internal
(non-routable) addresses for hosts on their public servers, which
solves the remote access DNS problem.
