User wanting to use a .local domain to host DNS

I'm a bit confused by a user request. I think he is trying to keep some hosts on the private side of DNS, but he wants to use a DNS name like host.sub.local. I do not know of the use of the .local TLD except in bonjure. Can anyone shed some light on the use of the .local TLD?
