Misconfiguration of dnsmasq?


My dnsmasq works normally most of the time, I thought. Today when my internet went down my Kodi installations were moving like molasses (only local content). After awhile I tried putting the ip of my sql server / mythtv backend instead of their fqdn (below in /etc/hosts) and that fixed it. Kodi moves real fast, fully loaded and ready within 10 seconds of starting it. All art, selecting something and it plays instantly. Before, even with my internet on it was a bit of a waiting game.

TLDR - Maybe I just have stuff in the wrong order. Ultimately when the internet went down my dns resolution for local went to crap.

/etc/dnsmasq.conf - I left out my statics with dhcp-host lines.

Code:
# Dns
port=53
domain-needed
bogus-priv
strict-order
expand-hosts
domain=mylan.home
# DHCP
dhcp-range=192.168.1.100,192.168.1.220,255.255.255.0,24h
dhcp-option=option:router,192.168.1.1
dhcp-option=option:dns-server,192.168.1.2
dhcp-option=option:netmask,255.255.255.0

# TFTP
enable-tftp
tftp-root=/srv/tftp

# LTSP

# Set some tags to be able to separate client settings later on.
# "39" means "recent iPXE with menu support": http://ipxe.org/howto/dhcpd
dhcp-match=set:iPXE,175,39
dhcp-match=set:X86PC,option:client-arch,0
dhcp-match=set:X86-64_EFI,option:client-arch,7
# Due to rfc4578 errata, sometimes BC_EFI=9 is misused instead of X86-64_EFI=7:
dhcp-match=set:X86-64_EFI,option:client-arch,9
dhcp-mac=set:rpi,b8:27:eb:*:*:*
dhcp-mac=set:rpi,dc:a6:32:*:*:*

# In proxy DHCP mode, the server ONLY sends its IP and the following filename.
# Service types: man dnsmasq or https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4578#section-2.1

Followed the instructions under the DNS server section where it applied to my lan. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/dnsmasq

Changed back to fqdn's and my local resolution is wonderful. Kodi is loading instantly and I have zero lag time on any local lookups.
