and using:
# HostnameLookups: Log the names of clients or just their IP addresses
# e.g., (on) or (off).
# The default is off because it'd be overall better for the net if people
# had to knowingly turn this feature on, since enabling it means that
# each client request will result in AT LEAST one lookup request to the
# nameserver.
