using your own DNS settings would be a "side channel" and "IP leak/disclosure".

Tor cares about your DNS if configured as relay, in order to respond
to lookups on behalf of clients like yourself.

as a client, you must always resolve hosts through Tor, or connect by
name, otherwise you circumvent the protection it provides.
