     One solution is to just list the nameserver(s) from the primary
ISP in resolv.conf.  Nameservers are, AFAIK, open to the net.  Some
years ago I suspected that my ISP here in Florida had unreliable
nameservers, so at my son's suggestion I added a nameserver from the
University of Virginia to my/etc/resolv.conf.  This is not a clean
solution, and the ISP might not appreciate additional traffic on his
nameserver.  On the other hand, if the traffic isn't heavy it probably
wouldn't make any difference.
