Hey Devin,

 As you know, /etc/resolv.conf contains the DNS servers... you've got
that part.  The next part is to modify /etc/nsswitch.conf.  This file
specifies where to look, and in what order, for different information
maps, such as passwd, host, etc.  In the case of "host:"  you can have
entries like file, dns, ldap, nis, nis+ and now even mdns (multicast
DNS).  My bet is that you need to include "dns" on that line.  There are
actually pre-config'ed examples, so you can do this inside the zone: "cp
/etc/nsswitch.dns /etc/nsswitch.conf".  Then try again.

 In Shared IP zones (the default) networking is not configured inside
the zone, so /etc/defaultrouter won't do anything inside the zone. 
However, name services (DNS, NIS, LDAP, etc) are.

 Fix /etc/nsswitch.conf in the zone and let us know if that clears up
the problem.
