Question dnsmasq dhcp+dns resolv unless for server

Hi, I've set up a very simple net with a dhcp + dns server using dnsmasq.
It works but the server itself cant resolv clients names. Clients do resolv without any problem
my /etc/dnsmasq.conf

I dont mean to be unpolite but the shorting system just shows very first lines.

as I said when I ping from the server a clients name it doesnt find it.
with the ip it works fine.
Ive tried a thousand options without any luck
Thanks in advance

Make sure dnsmasq is listening on localhost as well, then modify the server's /etc/resolv.conf to point to nameserver
