By default, we get a real working name server - it resolves addresses.
For security purposes, you *may* have to make it a bit more open, so it
can be accessed by other machines, and that's a good thing.  If you want
any DNS server to resolve records that you hold, you always have to add
them yourself.  It's unavoidable to have to do some customisation.
