I should have done some research, first. :-)
(found on http://www.multicastdns.org/), reads:
"Any DNS query for a name ending with ".local." MUST be sent
to the mDNS multicast address (22.214.171.124 or its IPv6 equivalent
There is no fallback to unicast DNS mentioned, so I think psi is acting
as specified in this draft. And in fact, it's probably not psi but some
unix library doing the query, as 'ping xyz.local.' does the same.
