BIND 8.2.2p5 and a dial-up connection

I've been trying to configure BIND 8.2.2 patch level 5 to work with
my LAN and dial-up connection to my ISP.  Every hour or so it seems
to want to connect to the ISPs name servers in order to verify addresses
which it already has had responses for.  This is far from ideal (its
costing me money :), but I can't seem to find what is controlling
this activity - it seems to be instigated by BIND itself, rather than
a client program perfoming a lookup.

I've got the "dialup yes" option set amongst other things.  Is
there a cookbook configuration somewhere for a dial-up connection?
