Using jails and djbdns

I'm running dnscache and tinydns on the parent system, started through
daemontools with /usr/local/etc/rc.d/  I also have a number of
jails configured in /etc/rc.conf

My problem is the jails contain instances of Apache, qmail, and other DNS
dependent services which need tinydns running on the parent system, but
jails are executed before /usr/local/etc/rc.d/  So all the jails
boot up first, then djbdns services are started.

Is there some easy way to reverse this order, so svscan is started first and
jails started afterward?
