Public bug reported:

In my setup I have a non-recursive name server that gets pushed as part
of a vpn setup. This name server only resolves addresses that are part
of the vpn. It gets pushed to the top of the resolv.conf file by

Since the dnsmasq instance set up by lxc-net is started with --strict-
order, containers fail to resolve addresses completely, since they hit
the first name server and it does not resolve any addresses outside of
the vpn.

Removing the --strict-order option in /etc/init/lxc-net.conf and
restarting makes name resolution in the containers work.
