I've got that part.  What I don't understand is how will freshclam on a
local system know to pull updates from the localmirror?  Won't freshclam
on hostX only know about updates when it gets DNS info from
current.cvd.clamav.net?  If so, it seems to me that hostX will be out of
sync if it gets a DNS update before the localmirror does, right?

Thanks for the help,
