The nameservers in resolv.conf are tried in order. You can simply put first, followed by the other servers. This only adds a few seconds 
to the startup, it not like the timeouts of several minutes that you get when 
no nameserver is available.

If your problem is that the external nameservers come from dhcp then just add 
the line 

        prepend domain-name-servers;

to /etc/dhclient.conf
