Errata and corrections

P49. Set up Pi-hole with Raspberry Pi: “Manually configure each device for Pi-hole” we said:

If you want to fall back on your ISP’s DNS server should there be any problem with Pi-hole, or 8.8.8.8 if you want to use Google’s DNS server instead.

Pi-hole’s Dan Schaper informs us that this is incorrect and “will lead to that client not using Pi-hole at all.” Please see the following articles: Why should Pi-hole be my only DNS server and Primary vs Secondary DNS

Thanks Dan.
