        Here's how I think it works:
1.      cfengine runs
2.      cfengine realises that it needs to update its settings from
        policyhost
3.      cfengine tries to find policyhost
4.      Resolver doesn't work, so cfengine *can't find policy host*.

        The resolver has to work at least enough so that cfengine can pull
down new config.

        There may be some option that lets cfengine run without updating
its config, but then what's the point?

        I hope this helps :).
