I've used it for a while on freebsd without issue, configured as per
dnsmasq man page syntax

I would add to docs the risk that this feature can lead to a growing table
of ips that never gets pruned or expired, that could lead to allowing more
ip addrs within a Table over time, than might be anticipated.  i.e. you
could end up that the hostname of the endpoint moves ip, but your firewall
still allows traffic from the old ip, under some circumstance this is a
significant risk.  I use max-ttl  feature of dnsmasq with the pf Table
expires feature to prune the table every 15 mins. YMMV as the client using
this feature would need to support re-resolving ip's.
