Possible DNS Leak?

I’m very new to this so bear with me please:

I’m using a VPN on my host machine and tunneling Whonix from that. When I run a DNS leak test from my host machine under my VPN I get a random location and a random IP. When I run it from the Tor browser in Whonix I get a random IP, but the map image shows a location only 1 hour from me. Is this just extreme chance or is there a problem? I’m sure you’ll need further information to diagnose so just let me know.

I guess the dns inside Whonix-Workstation changes from time to time? If so, no problem.

If host IP would equal Whonix-Workstation IP, then we could have a problem. But if they’re different, that’s expected.
