58
59                 <para><command>systemd-resolved</command> is a system
60                 service that manages network name resolution. It
61                 implements a caching DNS stub resolver and an LLMNR
62                 resolver and responder. It also generates
63                 <filename>/run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf</filename>
64                 for compatibility which may be symlinked from
65                 <filename>/etc/resolv.conf</filename>.</para>
66
67                 <para>The DNS servers contacted are determined from
68                 the global settings in
69                 <citerefentry><refentrytitle>resolved.conf</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>,
70                 the per-link static settings in
71                 <filename>.network</filename> files, and the per-link
72                 dynamic settings received over DHCP. See
73                 <citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.network</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>

76                 <para>Note that <filename>/run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf</filename>
77                 should not be used directly, but only through a symlink from
