If you run dnsmasq and are having some trouble with occasional dns drops:
give this a try:
ls -alh /etc/resolv.conf
you should record where that Systemd points to in the future...
mine points to /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf

If you cat that, you find:
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
#     DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
nameserver 127.0.0.1
search lan

That does not include the lie of 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, so just remove that link
rm /etc/resolv.conf
b.t.w. that link lives in /etc/systemd/resolved.conf - silly D, tricks are for google...
(what else is going on that is non-apparent in that seemingly PID 1 process?)

And add back in the truth via a simple;
nameserver 127.0.0.1

Of course if you believe in dnssec, you probably believe in not butter...

Not sure how they would sign so everybody in the world would agree and trust it...
A keysigining party on that scale would be interesting...
