Specify DNS Server address?

I'm setting up a Sonicwall TZ 100. The system status tells me "You have not specified a DNS server address; some functions will not operate properly".

Do I really need to set up such an address or can I change a setting somewhere so it's not required? I don't at all care about DNS [afaik], eventually I'm going to enter a short list of numerical url's into a whitelist and be done with it.

You should be able to operate without putting it in, it just will nag you about it, since most people do want a DNS. As far as disabling the nag, that I'm not sure about.
It's not required, which is why you are just getting that informational message and not a fatal error of some sort.

Unless you have a specific reason not to use a DNS server, add one imo, it won't hurt anything.
