Exactly, thanks for the tip, Daryl.

Additionally to the resolv.conf change I had to adjust dnsmasq.conf as well with two listen-addresses:

listen-address= #SERVER1 IP
server= #the upstream DNS for WAN resolving, I chose google here, this could be open-dns or a 3rd party dns provider.

With that change in place "dig CLIENT1" does finally resolve as well to the CLIENT1 lease, not only the other way around.

Thank for pointing me to the right direction.
