The name server address goes into /etc/resolv.conf. Other places to
check are /etc/default/bind9 and /etc/network/interfaces.
You can always read /usr/share/doc/HOWTO/en-txt/DNS-HOWTO.gz and set
up your own name server which would make you independent from what
DHCP provides --- and how do you know that you can trust the name
servers that are provided? It's likely to be faster, too.
