response from the host command for a private address listed in /etc/hosts

Suppose that a LAN has machines myworkstation and myserver
with private addresses and that myworkstation:/etc/hosts
contains this line.    myserver.site.invalid    myserver

What response should come from `host myserver` executed
on myworkstation?  By consulting /etc/hosts, it should be
able to report the address  I get only this.

peter@myworkstation:~$ host myserver
Host myserver not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
