Great. I just spent half a day debugging my network (as I've just set up my own bind service on a new server) before I finally found an article[1] and later this bug report that explained what was going on and how to fix it.

I noticed that my Ubuntu Server has the working nsswitch.conf installed by default with: hosts: files dns

I'm running Desktop Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop so I don't know if this has been fixed in later Ubuntus. But if not, please fix it! The fix seems pretty easy.
