On a machine with virtual networking is enabled and two ether net
controllers eth0/ and eth1/ and having SAMBA smb.conf
set to:

dns interfaces = lo br0

is there a chance for:

1) The system not to boot with DNS working
2) The DNS server bounce between eth0 and eth1
3) The DNS server portion work on boot sometimes on eth0, but when software
restarted only work on eth1 or vise versa
4) Intermittent craziness.

Clients report using nslookup working dns server on eth0
sometimes on eth1 and of course sometimes not at all.  Restart
of services makes it work on at least one of the controllers, but its a
digital game of chance with no pull handle, spinning fruit, or potential
cash payout.
