As long as dbus can get out of the chroot, it should work, but there are
some configuration options that aren't usually set in the default
bind-chroot packages.  Essentially, if you want out-of-the-box setup,
you install caching-nameserver and you're good to go.

Or, don't use bind at all.  If you're not running bind, NM should write
the correct values to /etc/resolv.conf, otherwise it's a bug.  Of
course, that requires that DHCP works.
