Default DHCP settings give your hosts m0n0wall as the DNS server, so it is 
not a problem for most.  This also is often faster, and kinder on the 
bandwidth than outside DNS.

Trouble for security.  Names are subject to DNS poisoning.  And extra layer 
of security when someone takes over windowsupdate.microsoft.com as the 
hijacked address won't be in my passthrough.
