How did nginx resolve names?

Hi Francis - Thank you for response explaining the difference in DNS
resolution behavior during
1) start - up
2) run time.

Can you please elaborate why start-up DNS resolution does not use `resolver`
directive? Just the way run time resolution does?

A follow up question - 
Is it feasible to use system resolver as the run time resolver by explicitly
adding it to the `resolver` directive?
