It still caches DNS lookups for it's own use, but when transparently
intercepting the client requests the clients will also make a DNS lookup
before initiating the request, as required for the client to be able to
connect to the requested server.

If you do not want the client to perform DNS lookups then the client MUST
be configured to use the proxy.
