Currently our Nagios tests are implicitly performing DNS lookups before connecting to the hosts under test. This will change in #1567, so we need to manually test the DNS resolution.

What to change

Implement Nagios-DNS-tests for A (IPv4) and AAAA (IPv6) records, at least. The input data from hiera (hosts.yaml) should be sufficient, so that the tests themselves could become auto-generated using Puppet.

Note that IMHO we currently don't test the AAAA DNS record at all because all Nagios tests use IPv4. Also, this change will allow us to test names like - these aren't associated with individual hosts meaning that they aren't being tested right now. Not sure whether this can be easily done as part of this ticket however (Nagios tests individual hosts and these names aren't associated with a host - they can return any number of hosts of the same type).
