A normal DNS server will not be able to resolve an onion address

My program uses the transparent proxy provided by the Tor daemon which
resolves an onion address to an address in a non routable address

If the DNS server returns an address outside the VirtualAddrNetworkIPv4
range, I know that something is wrong...
