Netifd writes the dns servers in /tmp/resolv.conf.auto which are read
by dnsmasq.
However I don't see a way to pass DNS servers for a specific domain
via the resolv.conf.auto file to dnsmasq unless changes are done in
If such functionality needs to be supported; the changes will not only
be limited to netifd.
And netifd rewriting dnsmasq.conf seems a bit hacky too me
