If it's trying to add it to /etc/resolv.conf then it won't work.

There's some shell commands for mac that change the DNS settings. This
has been a pain for many VPN clients on mac.

This may or may not help: https://discussions.apple.com/message/20982302

I don't know what Strongswan does internally to set the DNS but
there's a specific way to tell Mac to accept the new DNS settings.
