Hey Simon,

Since commit "Fix --address=/#/...... which was lost in 2.86"
(26bbf5a314d833beaf0f147d24409969f05f3dba) --local being a
synonym for --server is broken as --local became a synonym for --

The attached patch fixes this.

This was reported on the Pi-hole forums:

> I have local=/fritz.box/ in my /etc/dnsmasq.d/02-
> localdns.conf config file. This worked fine until upgrading
> pihole last night. Now all queries to FQDNs such as google.com
> get responded with google.com.fritz.box and ip address
> Changing the line to server=/fritz.box/ restores the
> previous handling. However, according to the dnsmasq manpage "-
> -local is a synonym for --server to make configuration files
> clearer in this case."
