What is the process for doing this. I know the entries are held in the /etc/resolv.conf, but is there anything else that needs to be changed and once the change is made, does the server need to restart in order for it to use the new DNS Servers for resolution?

You can simply edit that file and the changes will be immediately available to the resolver libs. If nscd is running you may need to flush it's cache if data from a new DNS server would be different from what the old servers would have supplied.
