Well, it stands to reason that if a Customer doesn't have the correct DNS
server's assigned, they won't be able to resolve ANY names except those
assigned locally in a hosts file or whatever the Mac / Winslows equivalent

This is not a fault of the NAS, but an effect of poor planning and a
limited understanding of how the DNS system works.

On the other hand, your Cisco will not be able to resolve names if IT is
not setup right! So, when logged into the console, you will not be able to
do things such as "traceroute", "ping" and "telnet" using anything except
IP addresses.
