resolves all non-existent address to my local host


My debian box (woody) resolves all non-existent hostnames to the local
host. I find this to be strange behaviour and it should not happen.

Please help me correct this issue.

for example, for some non-existent host named asdasdlkajd

$ host asdasdlkajd
Host asdasdlkajd not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

as you can see, it says there is no asdasdlkajd (dig says the same), but
when i ping it:

$ ping -c 1 asdasdlkajd
PING minerva0.redcetus.com ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.0 ms

--- minerva0.redcetus.com ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.0/0.0/0.0 ms

How could this be happening?

These are some of my files

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf

$ cat /etc/hosts       localhost  minerva minerva.redcetus.com

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
# (added automatically by netbase upgrade)

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

$ cat /etc/host.conf
order hosts,bind
multi on
spoofalert on

Some package versions:
ii  net-tools      1.60-4
ii  libc6          2.2.5-11.5
ii  bind9          9.2.1-2.woody
ii  ifupdown       0.6.4-4
ii  netkit-ping    0.10-9
