Description (partial)

OnPrem server reaching out to Root DNS server

versions prior to 7-202001.
The SCAP remediation script has appended this bit of configuration to rsyslog.service. Since "logcollector" is not a valid host, it will lead to many DNS failures.
{{Per CCE-CCE-27343-3: Set *.* @@logcollector in /etc/rsyslog.conf}}
