Thanks. That's it.  I somehow missed it there in the manual page:

	When it receives a SIGUSR1, dnsmasq writes  statistics
	to  the  system log.  … For each upstream server
	it  gives  the  number  of  queries sent, and the
	number which resulted in an error.

That gives me the information I was looking for regarding verifying
which server dnsmasq is using.
