Fail queries fast if no DNS servers are configured.
When no DNS servers are configured (and thus there is no chance
that the DNS query will suceed), res_nsend returns early, but
it does not tell the cache that the query has failed.
Therefore, if the caller retries the query, it will block for
PENDING_REQUEST_TIMEOUT (= 20 seconds) waiting for the "existing
query" (which isn't actually doing anything) to complete.
