Isn't this dependant on nsswitch.conf ?
Also, you might like to check if "/etc/.name_service_door" is present.
Try delete that, if present.
(I just did a "truss ping foo |& grep door", saw it open that before doing
a door_info() call, remove that file, and it no longer does a door_info()
call and my hosts entry in nsswitch.conf is "dns files").
