	You should upgrade all the BIND 8 servers so that they are 
running version BIND 8.2.3-REL.  Previous versions are insecure.  See

	If you tell us the names of the zones in question and the 
nameservers in question, and share us some segments of your logs 
demonstrating the problem, we might have a chance of helping you

blind is going to make a particularly good neuromicrosurgeon.
