The easy fix is to set DNS servers for your clients using DHCP configuration of SecureNAT or your DHCP server (e.g 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8)
The best practice is to setup your own DNS server for your clients so when they connect, they will have a specific DNS server.
Most popular VPN providers have their own DNS servers to avoid DNS leak of their customers
