pass in on xl0 inet proto {tcp, udp} from any to any port 53 keep state
	"keep state" will mark packets for stateful feature, allowing packets
back (dns response).  I block all tcp packet for port 53 because they
are just for domains transfer.  On really, I just pass it for my
secondary dns servers.
	On my 3.1 system, "keep state" is not keeping state correctly, so I
appended the following rule:
pass out on $EXT inet proto udp from any to any port 53 keep state

	Ports above 1024 are just for socket source, like your machine trying
to connect a web server.  Take care about destination port, usually well
know services (20, 21, 22, 25, 80, 110, 443, etc).
