It seems to be working when I do not add additional DNS servers to
resolv.conf so it looks like:


And add the following option to dnsmasq.conf


resolv2.conf will now contain the external DNS settings.

This seems to be working. Somehow it looks like the resolver that is used by
the Debian system has a quick timeout and starts to try the next DNS server
from the resolv.conf file. Using a separate list of DNS servers seem to
solve this.

Can someone confirm this behavior?
