OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) VPN PPTP client not working.

Just upgraded to OS X Yosemite (10.10) and found the PPTP VPN becomes not working. Well the PPTP VPN does get connected successfully but the problem is my office file servers become unreachable due to "unknow host" error unless I use their IP addresses instead of the host names. When I ping their host names I got the error:

Cannot resolve server.company.local : unknown host

I checked the DNS for the PPTP VPN, it is with two of my DNS servers in place and looks just fine. Again, it was working well before the upgrade. Can you help please?

We used to be on OS X 10.8 and it was working well. Just upgraded to 10.10 last night. Any solution?

According to the discussion linked above:

"DNS will no longer work with .local domains which do not advertise a SOA record.
 
In iOS 8 that a DNS server must advertise a SOA record for the .local domain in order for iOS to resolve .local hostnames against the DNS server.
 
If you are asserting ownership over the ".local" top-level-domain, then you must be advertising a start-of-authority record for that domain.  It is a mis-configuration not to have a SOA record.  Apple permits it with the "local" SOA in iOS 8 for backward-compatibility with Active Directory."

Just simply add domain.local in the pane of Search Domains which is in Network / VPN / Advanced / DNS tab
