Well, there are two answers to this:
1. No. :) It cannot be turned off (as far as I know), because part of
sudo's capabilities are to limit what can be run as root by a particular
user *from a particular machine*, meaning Joe can run xyz from
localhost, but not from the fileserver remotely. So, to determine host,
it needs to lookup hostname.
2. If your "sudo" is slow for this reason, then it speaks to much
larger DNS issues that are most likely making lots of other things slow.
Your users most likely are not slow because they run sudo. They will be
slow for the same reasons that sudo is slow. So, better to fix the root
cause of the slowness (no pun intended) :).
