readers.conf vs localhost

Here is a very simple readers.conf (system sparc-sun-solaris2.6):
auth qrde {
        hosts: localhost
        default: nask
}
access qrde {
        newsgroups: *
}
But while telneting from and to localhost (port 119) I got "You have no
permission to talk". Ghrrr... And here is what I saw in logs:
Jun  7 15:27:00 pippin nnrpd[386]: localhost.aqq connect
Jun  7 15:27:00 pippin nnrpd[386]: localhost.aqq no_permission
                                             ^^^
What a surprise! "aqq" is a value of "domain:" parameter in inn.conf.
I think it is a bit confusing behavior. Is it a bug? Or a feature...?:-)
