Specify -reject-unknown-tld and -reject-rfc2606 to disable these tests. 
AND .localdomain and .local are considered part of RFC 2606 family since 
you should never see those on the public internet. The alternative is 
simply to add a:

Connect:lan-ip-family 	OK


Connect:192.168.0	OK

to access and it would by-pass such tests locally while allowing you to 
filter them from the outside.

.local is used for multicast DNS and is an Internet Draft as I recall.
