Uh, ex*cu*se me? Just what do you think BIND *is*?
Did you actually read the documentation for the format of resolv.conf?
The manpage describes a "lookup" line; it does not describe a "file"
line. Checking the source (lib/libc/net/res_init.c) reveals that a
line reading "file lookup bind" will be ignored.
