This is useful, for one, in situations where you are running MS Active
Directory on your LAN and want to forward all requests for your AD
domain to one of your domain DNS servers.

i.e. if your company's AD domain is example.com, and your Windows
Server DNS server is 192.168.1.2, you could tell m0n0wall to foward
all DNS requests for *.example.com to 192.168.1.2 rather than the
default DNS server which is typically your ISP's.
