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.
