avahi-daemon is the thing that does multicast dns - right?  I think
using mDNS is an accident waiting to happen.  The other viewpoint
would be RFC 6762:

   Multicast DNS and its companion technology DNS-Based Service
   Discovery [RFC6763] were created to provide IP networking with the
   ease-of-use and autoconfiguration for which AppleTalk was well-known
