[Dnsmasq-discuss] What's the "right" way to specify upstream servers?

I know there probably isn't a "right" way to do this but, while I've
been trying to sort out how to make my dns/dhcp more resilient, I have
looked at my existing dnsmasq running on a Pi and it looks a bit odd
It's a pretty standard, off the shelf Raspberry Pi installation using
the Lite version as it's headless. The dnsmasq.conf file has been
changed quite a lot over the years though and I wonder if it's still
The upstream servers *seem* to be specified in /etc/dhcpcd.conf as
# Example static IP configuration:
static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.2 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124
# Generated by resolvconf
So, is the above OK? Is it the "right" way to do it? ....etc.
The /etc/resolv.conf is written by /etc/init.d/dnsmasq and is, I
believe, correct so that dnsmasq does local cacheing. However I'm not
sure about the upstream servers in /etc/dhcpcd.conf including the
local host as well.
