What does UTM do for DNS - Should I keep it included?

Hi Guys,

Apologies if this is a NooB question...

I've been happily using UTM for a while now at home with it acting as DNS server for my LAN and then sending anything necessary off to Cloudflare for forwarding, no problems at all.

Yesterday I deployed a Pi-hole to try to limit some of the advertising I was getting (works really well) in between UTM and Cloudflare but because it's seeing all the traffic coming from the UTM all of the metadata is wrong. I can correct this by changing the DHCP config to point the clients directly to the Pi-hole for DNS but I'm unsure what (if anything) I'd be losing from UTM...

Does UTM offer any additional benefit from serving DNS? Is there any reason to keep it in the chain?
