Yes, it's all in resolv.conf(5):
option attempts:1
to only have one attempt. You can change timeouts, order of scan,
pretty much everything you can think of.

The proper way to go is probably to use the configuration files before
changing the code (but then, maybe I say that only because I don't
know where to look in the glibc :-) ).
