This is my chance to evangelise dnsmasq again. Please consider it for this role, it's just what it's designed for and I'll add dbus support ASAP. Did I mention that dnsmasq would be perfect for this?

I read over the main page at their website, and it wasn't obvious to me
if it can do what's needed for a longer-term solution.  Specifically,
can you give it a list of zones and network numbers (ip+netmask, that
is) and tell it a list of nameservers to use for those, and only those,


dnsmasq \
  --server=/ \

You can put the server options in the config file too, and nest config files.
