Hmm, that doesn't seem right.  I have a .localdomain on all my hostnames
and Avahi and mDNS work just fine with the special .local domain.

  [jbastian at tarantula ~]$ hostname

  [jbastian at tarantula ~]$ ip addr show em1 | grep inet | awk '{print $2}'

  [jbastian at gecko ~]$ ping -n tarantula.local
  PING tarantula.local ( 56(84) bytes of data.
  64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.281 ms

Maybe you have iptables blocking mDNS traffic (tcp port 5353)?
