host -t mx brest.bks.by brus.belpak.brest.by
Now it's working ok. I've restarted bind.
But i'm sure that after some period of time
this problem will appear again.
And i'm also sure that when i restart just only bind -
May be when this problem will appear again i will let you know.
Or may be you can give me some advice, for examle - to turn on some
another logging level (now i have "severity info") or something else.
I think it's a promlem of the named core or problem of the OS (FreeBSD
5.2.1). But IMHO - it's a bind problem. I have plenty of memory and
disk space. All other daemons work without problems.
Best regards, and thank you for help.
