Clients are not required to use the local network's suggestions for DNS

I have a laptop that runs BIND, and I've configured the DHCP client to 
update the BIND configuration to use offered servers as forwarders. On 
that laptop, my DNS server _is_ at 127.0.0.1.
It works very well.



Some wireless routers will get their own IP addresses by DHCP from, say,
a DSL modem (which may in turn get its IP address and DNS server info
from the ISP).  As a DHCP server, the modem may provide DNS server
information to the router.  As a DHCP client, the router may accept that
information or the user may set it (and/or the router's IP address)
manually.
Exactly.
