Try reading the BIND documentation. Take a look at the html directory
in the doc tarball. I quote:

	If <CODE>yes</CODE>, the server will keep track of its own
	outstanding query ID's to avoid duplication and increase
	randomness.  This will result in 128KB more memory being
	consumed by the server. The default is <CODE>no</CODE>.
