You should not rely on the order of entries in resolv.conf. Servers will not always be queried in the listed order. This is implementation-specific.

If you have two servers that will answer differently to the same query, then you shouldn't have those two servers in resolv.conf. Aim for a consistent (and consistently useful) result.
