Avahi in no way uses nss-mdns, but nss-mdns requires Avahi to actually work. nss-mdns used to support mDNS resolution without Avahi, but that was removed some years ago and deprecated for more than a decade before that.

nss-mdns should have avahi as a dependency.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any
avahi 0.7+18+g1b5f401-3
nss-mdns 0.14.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
pacman -Qi avahi nss-mdns
This task depends upon
