the os resolves from the host file ok,  e.g. ping.
but, the application sendmail still resolves via DNS.
many thanks

well there is a way to turn off DNS in Sendmail but as you stated, it

you might have to make a record in DNS just to relay mail, minus the MX
records.  but why *wont* you want to use DNS?
