Hi Gordon, depends on your configuration, which you forgot to provide. What is in /etc/resolv.conf for example? What flags/configuration are both instances using?
I would quess 127.0.0.1 might be in resolv.conf. That would mean hosts.2 instance would query hosts.1 instance. That might or might not be desired. Please share more details how you configuration looks like.
