URL.Destination.IP and DNS traffic

I'm looking at using the "URL.Destination.IP" property in a rule, which has the following in its description:


The IP of the requested resource (does a DNS query).


I'd like to confirm whether or not this property causes an additional DNS query to occur (will I be doubling DNS traffic)?  Or will that lookup populate or leverage the DNS resolver cache in cases where traffic to the site is allowed and therefore not send more DNS traffic on the network?
