[Official clients] Add option to resolve certain domains locally

Let's say I want NextDNS to resolve most of my system's name queries, but I have some that only resolve successful on my local nameservers. Would be nice if I can just add something to a sort of whitelist like `*.local` or `*.company` and then queries will be sent not to NextDNS but my standard resolver.

    There’s a feature under the Settings called Rewrites which accomplishes the same thing although the query occurs at NextDNS server rather than on the client

      Calvin Hobbes Thanks Calvin for mentioning it. This is definitely a good feature, but is not really sufficient:

      • It allows only custom AAAA or A RR types. Nothing more complex.
      • It's realistically only usable if you have a handful of hosts, there is no import/export to easily maintain many entries.
      • It only works if you are the sole maintainer of the custom nameserver and have insight/overview of all zones.

      Jakob in that case you’d probably want to use split horizon https://github.com/nextdns/nextdns/wiki/Split-Horizon

      Thank you I didn't know about that feature! Yes. Let's say I wish for a Split Horizon option on more clients. I understand it makes the most sense on the CLI, but it wouldn't hurt to have it on the other clients :)
