Windows Bind library and resolv.conf

It appears that the W2K Bind library requires the resolv.conf file (in the
Windows system folder) in order to find the  DNS server. However, W2K does
not create or use the resolv.conf file. It stores that information (DNS
server) in the registry. 
Does this mean if there is no resolv.conf file, Bind library will not work? 
Another question I have is - what if the host is using DHCP? How will the
Bind libarary get the DNS server name?

Any information is appreciated.
