I'm noticing a weird problem with bind9 dig... bind 8 dig seems to work

aura% dig net. soa

; <<>> DiG 9.2.3rc3 <<>> net. soa
;; global options:  printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

My system seems to be resolving itself just fine:
aura% dig +sh

Digging at that IP works fine:

aura% dig @ net. soa +sh 1100265444 1800 900 604800

I get the same problem with; others I checked (e, f,
d) seem to be fine.

On the same machine, bind 8 dig works fine:
aura% dig.old net. soa      

; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> net. soa 
; (1 server found)
;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
;; got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 6
;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 13, ADDITIONAL: 11
;;      net, type = SOA, class = IN

net.                    2D IN SOA (

On another machine (on a different network), bind 9 dig shows the same
