The example dates from before the time Apple changed the API to use host-local 
connections by default.
I don't think the documentation is wrong so much as a little unclear ...

If it is an asterisk ('*') then the nameserver checks all hosts on the local 
subnet (unless the nameserver is one that only manages local ports)

That phrase 'unless the nameserver is one that only manages local ports' could 
be interpreted more than one way.

So I added a line to explicitly state that the host name should be omitted if 
the nameserver does not support remote hosts.
