nginx doesn't use /etc/resolv.conf (directly, at any rate).

The answer is to tell nginx what resolver it should use.

The *reason* is related to blocking function calls, I think.

But the reason doesn't really matter, if all you want to do is have
it working.

nginx doesn't know about your resolver, only the one it was told to use.
