BIND 8.3.1 on NT.

Could someone help me out here please?  I have a situation that every time I try to browse a URL (any valid host) the first time, it always returns "page not found".  Subsequent queries are OK.  I have switched on Debug level 4 in the nameserver and I have the following:

06-Feb-2002 12:02:11.000 datagram from [].53, fd 176, len 128
06-Feb-2002 12:02:11.000 ncache: dname, type 1, class 1
06-Feb-2002 12:02:11.000 db_update failed (-10), cache_n_resp()
06-Feb-2002 12:02:11.000 send_msg -> [].1155 (UDP 144) id=1
evSetTimer(ctx 0x8a0020, func 0x413a90, uap 0, due 1012957333.000000000, inter 0.000000000)
pselect(177, 0xf5f5f5f5, 0xf5f5f5f5, 0xf5f5f5f5, 2.000000000)
select() returns 1 (err: none)

I was testing (browsing) with URL on a test machine using its own nameserver ( as resolver.  The above log comes from the test machine (it is the problem on the test machine nameserver that I want to resolve).  What did the "db_update failed (-10), cache_n_resp()" in the above message highlight? Or is it just coincidental?
