I think you are mistaking serverDestinations as being part of the DNS
operations. It is not.

serverDestinations is state in the FwdStateData 'Job', the IP addresses
used by it have to go through the peer selection 'Job' processing and
related access controls applied to whatever comes out of an ipcache
lookup 'Job'.

DNS lookups are buried 3+ 'Job' layers away on the other side of
ipcache. All they do is feed that cache with data.

If you are intending to alter serveDestinations operations, then please
dont call the option dns_* . It is a tcp_outgoing_* thing.
