With BIND (named) enabled on an OS-X Lion iMac, DNS lookups look at /etc/hosts only after checking with BIND and hence I can't override addresses using the hosts file. BIND does not even seem to access /etc/hosts (or /etc/resolv.conf) as far as I can see (using dtruss and from the sandbox log) so it must be some other OS-X DNS mechanism that does that.
Can I somehow tell BIND to consult /etc/hosts?
Thanks for your time and help
