If NM fails to find connectivity, then any nameservers
in /etc/resolv.conf are no longer valid since they cannot be reached.
If you have static nameservers that you'd like to use, those should be
specified *per-connection*, since as David said, nameservers change
depending on where the information came from (VPN, DHCP, PPP, etc).

Can you describe your problem in more detail?
