firewall question...

Hello all,
   Can anyone tell me if there is a good reason to allow connections to
a local DNS port(53) from remote privledges ports(< 1024)?

   As I understand it *all* DNS is one of:
local port         remote port
(53)        <->      (53)
(1024:65535) ->      (53)
(53)         <-   (1024:65535)

and there should never be:
local               remote
(53)        <-      (1:1023)
(1:1023)    ->        (53)
