Networking issue on VMware Fusion CentOS 8 guest

I've successfully installed pi-hole on a VMware Fusion CentOS 8 Guest OS

This works fine inside the guest.

I've configured my Mac his to redirect all UDP traffic on port 53 to the CentOS 8 guest and enabled port forwarding on the Mac and configured the guest to use a static ip address using Fusion's network Autodetect feature, This allows the guest access to the host network.

I can ssh to the guest fine.

However if I query DNS I can see the query arrives on the guest with tcpdump

listening on ens33, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 262144 bytes
16:35:32.588694 IP > 9629+ A? (28)
16:35:37.589861 IP > 9629+ A? (28)

but the guest does not respond.

If I login to the guest it works fine:

16:36:51.095771 IP > 25066+ A? (28)
16:36:51.110600 IP > 25066 1/0/0 A (44)
16:36:51.113013 IP > 60826+ AAAA? (28)
16:36:51.145632 IP > 60826 1/0/0 AAAA 2a00:1450:400e:80f::200e (56)
