Hello List.

I understand that adding this statement on a single line to the conf file will 
block it.

There are many sites that maintain lists of domain names of sites for blocking 
known ad, tracking and other malware domains. Combining these lists together 
results in a list containing 50,000+ single line records.

My question is how does dnsmasq internally handle a file of this size?

Is this file read one time at startup and kept in a binary searchable table for 
super fast lookup?
Are the server=/xxx/ records read sequentially every time for each dns request?
