Hello All,
 I am at my whits end, I need to stop bind from doing so many look ups.
I want it to use it's cache a lot more. If I repeat a lookup fairly
soon after the first lookup, I get an answer from the cache, no-
authorative, but just a couple of minutes later, if I do the same
query, it does the lookup again. The refresh is 3 hours on the record I
am looking up. Here is the top of my named.conf. What can I do?

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham
