uses whatever DNS servers your system is setup to use. It's different
for various systems, but on a typical linux system, this is via the
/etc/hosts.conf and /etc/resolv.conf files.. on Solaris, it would be
/etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/resolv.conf, etc..
From the 'gethostbyaddr' man page (linux system):
"The domain name queries carried out by gethostbyname() and
gethostbyaddr() use a combination of any or all of the
name server named(8), a broken out line from /etc/hosts,
and the Network Information Service (NIS or YP), depending
upon the contents of the order line in /etc/host.conf.
(See resolv+(8)). The default action is to query
named(8), followed by /etc/hosts."
