in reply to Net::DNS::Resolver and nameservers

The code Net::DNS::Resolver->new(nameservers => [qw(1 2 3)]; and the code
@nslist = qw(1 2 3); Net::DNS::Resolver->new(nameservers => [@nslist];
are the same, so I think the problem with only the first DNS server being queried is a problem with the Net::DNS::Resolver package or the underlieing library. You might randomize the list of nameservers and reload them in a different order if a request fails.
