Caching Server - named.conf question


I'm setting up a caching server in CentOS 5.3 and am using the generic caching named.conf without much customization. I tested the DNS server with the dig command from another comp on my network:

Code:
dig @my_dns_server google.com
The thing is, I had not yet added anything other than localhost to the allow-query line (even though the "listen-on" line DOES contain both localhost and my network).

Isn't a dig command a query? Why did this work?

Here's a good definition of caching-only DNS: http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials...le.php/2193011

There is a howto on setting up caching name server with bind DNS program.
Try google with the keyword: bind caching name server.
And there are HOWTO's from www.tldp.org
