I have set up a FreeBSD box as a router; works great.
The router (machine  B) is a DHCP client to another box (Machine A)
that provides it with its IP address and its DNS server address.
When I hook up a new box (Machine C)  to Machine B, I provide it with
Machine B's  private IP address as its default Gateway, but have to
give it Machine A's address as the DNS Server.
I'd like to not "tie" new machines to Machine A;  instead I'd like
them to "discover" from Machine B the DNS server address, which
Machine B clearly knows.

I've looked at named and dnsproxy, but it _seems_ that they require
that I put machine A's address in a config file.  Though this is
better than the current situation, it still ties my network to machine
A's DNS address.

Thanks in advance.
