For local domains, I agree with Pascal. Avoid using ".local" because it 
can conflict/interfere with avahi-zeroconf:


For remote domains, just try using another DNS servers (OpenDNS ones or 
Google's) and see what happens. If you can browse the web, you'll have to 
check your local DNS server logs to see what is happening with the 
requests coming from your Squeeze box.
