Maybe I am missing something here but if you are only allowing your entire 16 
block to query/resolve on your DNS server why are you even running a DNS 
server?  Sounds like an over kill to me.  Why not just setup the resolv.conf 
file to use your Datacenter, Google or some other open DNS server to resolve 
for YUM?
