I'm not sure what you mean. NM has to write something into
/etc/resolv.conf, right? This decision has to be done on NM side and
number of active devices (or connections) has nothing related to that.
And this information is exactly what named needs (nameserver statement
from resolv.conf). Nothing more (except some notifies when resolv.conf
is changed).
