[sudo-users] sudoers problem

Got a problem with a sudo (1.6.7p5-1) - I would to place into /etc/sudoers
file a definition like:  Host_Alias LOCALHOST = localhost,

Unfortunately, such definition supposingly cannot be properly understood by
sudo(?). When I change "localhost" to a real host name - it works without
any problems.

But why is that? It would be more comfortable to me to have "localhost"
instead of real host name.

Could someone tell me, how can I persuade sudo to accept such setting?
