Please report what is on line 56.

Following command would print just that:

sed -e '56!d' /etc/dnsmasq.conf

I doubt that is about max-ttl option. Are you still using RHEL6 (or
derivate) for some reason? I thought every option is supported in more
recent versions. I would like to know what option were supported in the
old but is not in current version. Please Share.
