Squid-2.3+ does not use the externl dnsserver helper process. These
directives are only valid if you have selected to build Squid using the
old dnsserver approach to DNS lookups (--disable-internal-dns).

They are not related. One is for disk I/O the other for DNS lookups. You
can rune one without the other, both or none of them.
