I think I understand, but just for my personal education what is an 
"authoritative nameserver"?

Very unintentional ... I didn't think that the domain I gave dhcpd was 
actually used for anything .... I'll take it out right now.

Bogons gone, said erro gone too! What a coincidence. But now I get: resolver failed.

I guess this is a reference to being unable to resolve a DNS query for the ip? Is this important? Do I need to install some sort of local 
DNS server to fix this? (or maybe just a local DNS file?)

Thnaks for your help so far!
