I stumbled upon this Problem on 15.04. I cannot resolve company intranet
hosts via VPN as my WLANs local DNS server is always faster and only
knows about my local machines and internet.

>From a users perspective I don't care about what might be the correct
setup of the DNS-Servers (I cannot influence them) nor about personal
opinions on how it should be done. I need my system to work. I'm very
happy with Ubuntu, but this is a show stopper for me. I'll try to find a
work around as I could not find one above (why not this is about 3 years
old already). But if I cannot find one this will mean the end of ubuntu
on my company notebook.

  dnsmasq sometimes fails to resolve private names in networks with non-
  equivalent nameservers

Bug description:
  A number of reports already filed against network-manager seem to
  reflect this problem, but to make things very clear I am opening a new
  report.  Where appropriate I will mark other reports as duplicates of
  this one.

  Consider a pre-Precise system with the following /etc/resolv.conf:


  The first address is the address of a nameserver on the LAN that can
  resolve both private and public domain names.  The second address is
  the address of a nameserver on the Internet that can resolve only
  public names.

  This setup works fine because the GNU resolver always tries the first-
  listed address first.

  Now the administrator upgrades to Precise and instead of writing the
  above to resolv.conf, NetworkManager writes


  to /var/run/nm-dns-dnsmasq.conf and "nameserver" to
  resolv.conf.  Resolution of private domain names is now broken because
  dnsmasq treats the two upstream nameservers as equals and uses the
  faster one, which could be
