By default Linux will use hosts file first and then DNS servers listed 
in /etc/resolv.conf (If the specific application uses Glibc functions 
for name resolution) but dig is a DNS specific command.

So maybe you want to use the ping command?

At this time your question sounds more like a Linux user question rather 
then a PowerDNS one. If you are an end user host its unlikely you will 
need PowerDNS for anything.
