[tor-dev] Resolving TXT records

I'm trying to port go-libp2p <https://libp2p.io/> on tor.
The problem is with the dnslink features. Basically libp2p addresses are
not always friendly to use so libp2p allows to store them in dns TXT

But when I try to resolve a TXT record over Tor this errors :

tor --DNSPort &
host -v -t any jorropo.net
Trying "jorropo.net"
;; Connection to for jorropo.net failed:
connection refused.
# I'm pretty confident the dns option of Tor is working because I can
resolve A records.

Is this expected or I am doing something wrong?
