[Dshield] DNS blackholes

 I had a technical question I hoped someone here could answer.
 If you have badguys.org blackholed (say, redirected to, and someone on your network sends out a query for that IP, then the DNS server will return, right?
 Is it still possible for an individual host to send out a request to a specific server (say, dns.otherbadguys.net) for badguys.org, thus bypassing the blackhole?  That is, you're ignoring the local DNS server.
 Just wondering!  Thanks!
