It's very simple: The host has to be listed in the /etc/hosts with his name.
My host wasn't listed - I don't know why, usually bsd inserts the fqdn
by installation.
If you change in nsswitch.conf the resolving type in dns only for hosts,
it doesn't matter - the hostname must be listed in /etc/hosts.
Thanks for your hints.
