Suggestion for new 'dns proxy' feature?

Am I right I thinking that if I turn on 'dns proxy', I can do 
'\\' (if it fits into 15) letters?

I'd like to use 'dns proxy' but only for local addresses in my domain.

Would it be possible to do add a 'dns proxy local only = yes' or 
something (new option) which won't use DNS to resolve names which have a 
'.' in?

(Alternatively, if I can do this already, how do I?)

I'm not so much worried about people resolving names outside our domain 
as people who mistype a name and the server goes off looking for 
something non-existant.
