The router is another forwarder for the DNS requests (dnsmasq is the first).
To give an example: - $ host xxx 127.0.1.1 -> no response (via dnsmasq to router) - $ host xxx 192.168.1.1 -> response (directly to router) The difference is that 'host' uses varying random source ports, and 'dnsmasq' uses one preallocated random source port.
