It is. It's just not displayed there. Those fields are only for 
manually assigned DNS servers. If you have the DNS forwarder running on 
m0n0wall (default) and have clients use m0n0wall's IP address as their 
DNS server (default again if your clients use DHCP and the DHCP server 
is running on m0n0wall), you should be fine.

(or do you really have a problem, like something doesn't work? If so, 
you'll have to give us a lot more details...).
