LAN Server Load Balancing w/VIP - not working

I've been searching the interwebs and the pfsense boards and haven't come across solving my issue with server load balancing within my LAN. i'm using release 2.0.1 on my pfsense appliance.
here's the process I followed:
- create virtual IP (used a free IP from the /24 on LAN segment ,10.10.171.10/24)
- create ICMP monitor
- create 2 pools (idns1 and idns2) - idns1 - internal DNS, idns2 - external dns server1, external dns server2
- create 1 virtual server - using idns1 for primary pool and idns2 for fall back pool - using relay protocol dns
the status for pools and virtual servers shows green. relayctl from CLI shows everything I expect to see:
[2.0.1-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/etc(60): relayctl show summary Id Type Name Avlblty Status 1 redirect vs1 active 1 table idns1:53 active (1 hosts) 1 host 10.10.171.80 100.00% up 2 table idns2:53 active (2 hosts) 2 host 126.96.36.199 100.00% up 3 host 188.8.131.52 100.00% up
If I issue a dig query from a workstation on the lan segment to the VIP, the query times out. Not sure if someone has this kind of scenario setup and could offer some guidance, etc. that would be much appreciated.
