Thanks again for the reply, Kevin.
I turned on debugging as you suggested.  However, I do not know how to 
interpret the results.  Help is most appreciated.  Here are the results of 
debugging (Level 1):

datagram from [].1805, fd 22, len 25
req: nlookup(isc.org) id 4 type=1 class=1
req: found 'isc.org' as 'org' (cname=0)
findns: No root nameservers for class IN?
ns_req: answer -> [].1805 fd=22 id=4 size=25 rc=2
prime_cache: priming = 0, root = 0
sysquery: nlookup error on ?

Obviously, I have queried isc.org.  It seems to me that the problem lies in 
the findns procedure.
