The (documentation) „Name resolution for instances“ describes 4 methods on how to configure the DHCP offered DNS nameserver address to instances.

What I am missing there is a method to configure „announce the dnsmasq internal nameserver ip“. Is this option intentionally missing or how will it be configured? It generally seems to be the first DHCP pool address in a subnet so I could configure it static, but some kind of global setting via Keyword or flag seems to be more natural.

(The stack is currently liberty old, but answers about current releases are also appreciated)

That's the default if you don't configure anything.

This means do not specify dnsmasq_dns_servers. How do I specify what upstream DNS resolver dnsmasq should use in this case?

I don't know that much about dnsmasq, but I guess you can configure that using dnsmasq_config_file or dnsmasq_dns_servers.
