You can use nscd but turn off caching of DNS queries by editing
the /etc/nscd.conf.

Change:

        enable-cache            hosts           yes

To:

        enable-cache            hosts           no

You can also leave it caching, but tweak the TTLs in the config as well.

This thread is funny. I first ran into nscd DNS caching issues on
Solaris 2.5 in 1996.

This fix I just posted worked back then too.
