There is an easier fix. I had the same problem. The solution is
to put three identical nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf.
It seems that diald has the same problem. I found the fix in
diald's FAQ. This problem really should be noted in the kerneld
documentation.

Another little kerneld demand dialing tidbit: make sure that
tcsh is not compiled with the 'rh' (remotehost) option. It
will cause kerneld to dial every time the shell is invoked
for login.
