[Dnsmasq-discuss] Reverse lookups not working in authoritative mode

I just configured my dnsmasq server to be authoritative but now reverse
lookups don't work. With debug turned on I can see that the address is
resolved and with strace I can even see the resolved hostname being sent
in sendmsg but the machine doing the query says  not found: 3(NXDOMAIN).
If I remove the auth-server option it works as expected.

My configuration is minimal:


[franco at tc1 ~]$ host perth1
Using domain server:
Name: perth1

Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

[root at perth1 src]# dnsmasq -d -q
dnsmasq: started, version 2.68 cachesize 150
dnsmasq: compile time options: IPv6 GNU-getopt no-DBus no-i18n no-IDN DHCP DHCPv6 no-Lua TFTP no-conntrack ipset auth
dnsmasq: warning: no upstream servers configured
dnsmasq: read /share/system/etc/hosts - 282 addresses
dnsmasq: auth[PTR] from
