I'm wondering about how DNS works while using the VPN on my Mac, running Lion. Are all DNS lookup requests going through my company? Or only if they fail locally? Is there any way to change or configure this?

The nature of how I work requires my computer to be connected over the VPN pretty much 24/7, mostly to run a sync job after hours and allow email connectivity during the day. Not that I'm up to anything or that my company is likely to look into it, but I don't especially like the idea of after-hours web and internet usage potentially being logged by my company.

I could of course log off the VPN, but then I run the risk of forgetting to reconnect and the sync job not happening. I can only connect to remote machines by IP address anyway (and that's fine), so I'm not sure the DNS is really doing much for me anyway.
