resolvconf.conf in 9.1

I am trying to figure out and understand the config file
resolvconf.conf.  The man page is a bit on the sketchy side, and I see
no reference for resolvconf.conf in the Handbook.  Most of what google
finds looks like it is Linux-oriented, and that seems to be an entirely
different config structure for resolvconf, i.e., a directory of files
instead of a file of variables.

For example, I would like to change the order in which the name servers
appear in resolv.conf.  

There is one interface (fxp0) that is assigned both IPv4 and IPv6
addresses.   IPv4 uses DHCP to obtain the address and two nameservers.
  IPv6 uses rtadvd to obtain the IP address and nameserver (RDNSS).

The IPv4 nameservers appear before the IPv6 nameserver in resolv.conf,
and I would like the IPv6 nameserver to be first on the resolv.conf

What parameter in resolvconf.conf controls the order in which
nameservers are placed in resolv.conf?
