it's just a little undocumented trick to make local DNS requests not
go via the expensive route of the IP stack, but rather through a local

pppconfig should really be able to do DNS stuff itself, or you should
write something for /etc/ppp/ip-{up,down}.d. A BIND installation is
cumbersome, eats resources, and is absolutely unecessary on a
workstation. nscd if all fails, but not bind.
