The changing of the resolve.conf file by ppp (using usepeerdns) is
probably good for the average setup...

When the system is runing named as a primary server, it is dumb.....

You should check first...

Parse named config files in our ifup-post shell script?  I don't
think so...

You can set
in your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp* files, as
documented in /usr/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
and that will solve the problem for you.
