Ah, now there's another way to fudge it - set the 
dhcp-parameter-request-list to a set that doesn't include the options 
you want to omit. It does mean you have to manually work out what 
that option list should be.

It's quite valid to have DNS servers in any other location - as long 
as the routing is in place. For example, the router may be just that 
- a router and not something you are running a DNS server on. While 
there are good reasons for putting a DNS server on each network (or 
at least on each site), it's not wrong to do otherwise.
