I think the dnsmasq documentation does not advertise the software as an authoritative server, or a fully-fledged resolver -- although it could possibly be clearer by providing a section "Dnsmasq is not...".
The sections that state it provides DNS to a LAN isn't talking much about DNS functionality.
Hope that helps.
