It appears that the default resolv.conf contains 205.234.170.215 and 205.234.170.217, both of these domains seem to have wildcards pointing to 205.234.170.218.

e.g Trying to discern why one of google's mail servers was being bounced:

mjc@fortress ~ % dig 224.198.85.209.zen.spamhaus.org @205.234.170.217

; <<>> DiG 9.4.3-P1 <<>> 224.198.85.209.zen.spamhaus.org @205.234.170.217
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 11669
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;224.198.85.209.zen.spamhaus.org. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
224.198.85.209.zen.spamhaus.org. 150 IN A 205.234.170.218


Editing these nameservers out works as a workaround, but really, this should be fixed by default.

Those nameservers are not in any default template that I'm aware of.

We recommend opendns.com, which is 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222

These entries are being included in resolv.conf upon rebooting my gentoo vps, so, if they aren't coming from OpenVZ somehow, something worse must be happening. Would it be possible to confirm ?

You'll need to open a support ticket so we know what server you are referring to.
