Now why is the router picking up the wrong DNS servers?

Hi All
I have noted that my Billion Router is picking up Primary 210.159.6.9 and Secondary 210.159.6.10 and not the 13.49 & 13.50 ones???
I can change them manually in the router settings but I wonder why the 'wrong' ones are being picked up automatically???

That's a bit strange...those aren't even PN IP addresses:
dig mailgw.infomart.jp
; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> mailgw.infomart.jp

The OP made a typo - First byte should be 212
Not sure he thinks they're 'wrong' though...

All four IPs point to the same load balancers and DNS servers behind them so it's nothing to worry about.
