Sorry for the log entry not being precise enough.  Actually ping is used 
in the script get-ldap-ltsp-config, which is basicly the former script
debian-edu-config-ldap located in ltsp/ltsp_config.d, while dig is used
in the script 10-resolv-conf (iirc).  Both scripts are used within the
init-ltsp process (when an ltsp client starts).  The script 
get-ldap-ltsp-config has to be located outside of ltsp_config.d cause it
would otherwise be executed at the wrong time. 

Maybe dnsutils should be added to ltsp-client-core recommends.
Should I file a bug report against that package?
