I recently set up an ubuntu server in the same role, and faced the same
problem, but I found that Google's public DNS servers are actually
faster than my ISP's nameservers (plus don't play games with mistyped
addresses), so I just hardcoded 220.127.116.11 in the dnsmasq.conf.
I did use a dhclient hook to tell it to stop writing to /etc/resolv.conf at all,
so that resolv.conf has only 127.0.0.1 as the nameserver.
