CBOS incorrectly modifies outside DNS queries?

I have set up a Cisco 675 (running CBOS 2.4.7) to pass DNS queries through to an internal DNS server via this command:

set nat entry add 53 udp

When I query from the outside, all "A" record queries are returned with the ip address of the router in the answer section, so if the router's outside ip address were

dig @ +short

would return as the answer rather than the ip address specified by the DNS server. I have placed a packet sniffer between the 675 and the DNS server and verified that the DNS server returns the correct address.

Queries originating from within and answered outside behave normally.

I cannot find this behavior documented anywhere. Is there a way to turn this off? It seems this would be a bug because it prevents running a DNS server on the inside of a 675 that can respond to outside queries properly.

The syntax you use seems to be slightly different from what is shown in the document here :

Check if that is creating any problem.
