The IP addresses of your DNS servers should go in /etc/resolv.conf. That
is where the DNS Resolver is configured. Read the docs for it by running
'man 5 resolv.conf'. In short, you'll probably want 3 lines, each
beginning with the word nameserver, followed by a whitespace, followed by
the IP address of a nameserver.
