Normal, I do not know. Is it the same server that keeps asking? Are
those servers in your network and authorized to use your name server for
resolution? There are too many variables to answer that question. Perhaps
you can contact the admin of the system(s) in question and ask them what
is going on... If they are not in your network and not authorized to use
your name servers, use ACL's to exclude them...
