This (from the manpage) might help:
"The special server address '#' means, "use the standard servers",
so --server=/google.com/22.214.171.124 --server=/www.google.com/# will
send queries for *.google.com to 126.96.36.199, except *www.google.com
which will be forwarded as usual."
but I think you may have a bigger problem which requires you to
dynamically re-write the dnsmasq configuration, if the definition of a
"local query" varies depending on which network you're connected to.
