The Java methods that you are using are correct. As it is specified
"best effort" is used to determine the FQDN.
getByName will try to do forward lookup of k1.n3.local to retrieve its
address, which I assumes will succeed. Then this address is used to do a
reverse lookup to determine the FQDN of the host. What name service are
you using? Can you verify the response from the server to the reverse
