The 'domain' line is useless.  The 'search' line overrides it.  It is very
unlikely that you need it anyway, though, so take it out.  The 'search'
line probably does no damage (other than to waste some time), but it almost
certainly is useless and was put there by someone who does not understand
its purpose.  Take it out.  Man resolv.conf.

The ip's appear to be whidbey's nameservers.
