For starters it's totally un obvious and not transparent at all. Before 
that the IP in /etc/resolv.conf would point to the address I would use 
to send my DNS queries to and could debug from. Now a dig to that IP 
might reveal something totally different to what the app sees. If we not 
convince them to change it hopefully it is possible to turn it off.

So long
