2) Sort of. First, lookupd's cache is consulted, then DNS, (then NetInfo, and finally, NIS/flatfiles, if enabled through Directory Access).

The good order in this case is : Cache, Flat-Files (such as /etc/hosts), DNS, NetInfo and DirectoryService which can look in many places according to what's configured using /Applications/Utilities/Directory (LDAP, Active Directory, NIS and Flat Files...). To look at the configuration :
