Default PPP, Bind and resolvconf


I’m using testing.

My firewall system is configured as DSL router (PPPoE) and local DNS
server (bind9). The package resolvconf is installed as well.
/etc/bind/named.conf contains the line „include
"/var/run/bind/named.options";”. The local network interface has the line
„dns-nameservers” in /etc/network/interfaces.

Until some weeks (months?) ago /etc/resolv.conf contained only the local
DNS server ( In /var/run/bind/named.options the PPP daemon
would write the DNS server of my DSL provider as forwarders.

Now the forward DNS servers are written in /etc/resolv.conf as well. And
since they are before the local DNS server, the system can’t resolv names
from my own network.

Does someone know which package has changed its behaviour, so that
I could write a bug report? Or was the old behaviour a bug?

Thanks for your help!

Shade and sweet water!
