www.microsoft.com and hosts file wierdness. Why?

From a Windows XP SP3 machine with all patches I ping www.microsoft.com and
it hits 65.55.21.250

I then add the following line to my hosts file
127.0.0.1 www.microsoft.com

I flush dns
ipconfig /flushdns

I then ping www.microsoft.com and it still resolves to 65.55.21.250

Why?
