System hostname DNS entry is assigned to the wrong IP on multi-wan setups
According to the official docs, pfSense has kept the first and the second interface named WAN and LAN respectively, for history (legacy?) reasons.
When we have a multi-wan setup and eventually one of the WAN gateways is assigned to the "LAN" interface, the System DNS name ends up being resolved as the external IP address, instead of as the internal one. Overriding it does not work because instead of actually overriding, it in fact just adds a new "A" entry on the DNS response.
Currently, as shown here, the way that it finds which IP to assign to the $hostname.$domain is by getting whichever IP is assigned to the "LAN" interface, which might be assigned to a gateway.
1. Could we add some configuration so that one can tell the DNS resolver which interface the hostname DNS entry should get the address from, being defaulted to the first not assigned to a gateway?
2. Overriding the hostname.domain doesn't work, it just adds a new A entry to the DNS response. Is this expected?
