Some MS GUI jockey randomly clicking on radio buttons has screwed up his MS 

>client query: IN SRV

These are queries for MS Active Directory services, located via SRV records.

The underscore domain names, their queries, and SRV records are strictly 
intranet items that should never leak out to public internet.

Like MS's other famous screw up of making all w2k/xp OS's "register" their 
A records with DNS (ie, run as dynamic zone updaters) by default, these SRV 
thingies are harmless other than filling up your logs and wasting your 

In bind,

options {blackhole {address_match_list } ; };

... will minimize the effects on your BIND machine.
