Right oh. That works.
peter@joule:~$ cat /etc/hosts | grep 172.23.3.1
172.23.3.1 joule.invalid joule
peter@joule:~$ host joule
joule has address 172.23.3.1
peter@joule:~$ host joule.invalid
joule.invalid has address 172.23.3.1
But until about a month back that was unnecessary.
"host joule" would report the address which DHCP
had assigned to the interface connected to the ISP.
Is this a new normal behaviour? Is something broken?

In case anyone is interested.
A diagram is cited there.
