...what does it do? What effect are you actually after?
It comes in quite handy when you boot e.g. a machine which lost its network
connection due to some network problem and which tries to lookup some
hostnames on bootup or start a bind server.
The DNS lookups might have some quite long timeouts and if you can skip
this service instead it comes in quite handy. :-)
