Added note so specify this more correctly... the setting in /etc/host.conf has not so much moved to /etc/nsswitch.conf. Both those configuration methods/files could be used in the past, but the /etc/host.conf is an older way of configuring things and has become somewhat obsolete. nsswitch.conf can also control many more aspects and host.conf mainly still there for compatibility with older packages AFAIK.
