Thanks all for the replies. Just to let folks know that in the end I worked around this by
writing a python script which polls the management server for a list of VMs and IPs, and dynamically
updates any missing entries in our existing DNS servers. So far it's working well.

Currently it does not work that way.  A DHCP server is deployed per network.

For the guest IP. Infrastructure in this environment is open to debate...

What I was hoping was that any one virtual router would just resolve any allocated IP for
any network, but it doesn't seem to work that way.

Resolve DNS for the public IP or the guest IP?
It really depends on your DNS infrastructure. Because of the dependency on the datacenter
DNS infrastructure, CloudStack has shied away from an out-of-the-box solution.
That's not to deny that it is a real problem. It should be solved, but there are several approaches,
each of which is optimal for certain styles of DNS infrastructure.
