On the System:General setup are two text boxes for DNS IP's
I have two internal DNS servers on the LAN.
Currently I have m0n0wall setup with our ISP DNS IP's.
I do not have m0n0wall setup as a dhcp server. This is done via our
internal DHCP servers. All computers on the LAN use our internal DNS.

Is there any reason why I would "NOT" want to use these internal DNS,
versus putting our ISP's DNS IP's...for the m0n0wall general setup ??
In otherwords, what benefit am I getting by not using the internal DNS
??

The reason why I am asking is that in the state table, more than half
of the 300 entries are the m0n0wall WAN going to the ISP DNS. I was
wondering If I had incorrectly configured m0n0wall.

I also noticed in the status.php page

Oct 12 17:10:04 m0n0wall dnsmasq[110]: using nameserver 66.255.xx.11#53
Oct 12 17:10:04 m0n0wall dnsmasq[110]: using nameserver 66.255.xx.10#53
Oct 13 05:19:24 m0n0wall dnsmasq[110]: nameserver 66.255.xx.10 refused
to do a recursive query
Oct 13 05:19:24 m0n0wall dnsmasq[110]: nameserver 66.255.xx.10 refused
to do a recursive query

Otherwise everything appears to be working correctly.

Thanks,
