It's not great as a DNS server. It has some really odd behaviour. One of the things which used to annoy me a lot when using it as a recursor is things like `dig +trace` would just stop at dnsmasq, so you'd have to bypass it by doing something like `dig +trace @`.

Every DNS expert I know says to avoid dnsmasq.

It works fine as a DHCP server, though.
