I have defined 
search localhost in /etc/resolv.conf 

cat /etc/resolv.conf
search localhost

i did not define any nameserver ip address in this file

i have given the gw ip from where the internet can be reached

no dns is running in gateway. 
no dns service is running on the PC
no bind packages are installed on pc

but still if i ping to some domain like 
ping www.google.com it resolves and displayes icmp replies.

i dont know from where this name resolution is taking place 

please help on this what happens exactly.
