Yes, if you change it to the DNS address, then c-n will quit trying to 
connect to a machine that no longer exists, and connect to vmbuild instead 

It's there so that the machine can locate itself during bootup (before the 
bind daemon starts), or at least that's the traditional reason to have it.
