  True. The local resolver can be configured to resolve internal domains by pointing it to the dynamic name servers. Also one can set 'DNS1=' in /etc/sysconfig script, that way dynamic name servers are listed as DNS2, DNS3 etc.

For this very reason the dynamic name server entries need to go as "..transitory name servers to be used by the trusted local resolver".
