Do you have the "usepeerdns"-option set in ppp/options? If so, a quick 
 glance at `man pppd` wouldn´t hurt ;-)

If, for whatever reason, "usepeerdns"-handling is broken, simply edit 
 ppp/ip-[up,down].d/0dns-[up,down] accordingly.

OT: I have difficulties believing that anyone besides our local 
$quasimonopolytelco is stupid enough to provide adsl-service only over 
a poor excuse for a protocol like pptp. Life never ceases to amaze me,
