a) in case our primary nameserver works rather slowly
our "sendmail" does NOT automatically use the secondary nameserver.
BUT : in the mailer's "/etc/resolv.conf" there are both
IP-addresses of the prim. and sec. nameserver
(by the way : our browsers have no problems to switch to the sec.
nameserver in those cases) .
b) can anyone give me "a helping hand" how to make sure that
"sendmail" uses for its DNS-queries on port 53 the sec. nameserver
in case our prim. nameserver fails ?!
(perhaps with some refined "route-statments" in the attached
c) thank your for any help !
