I saw the error quite often as well, it appears benign, but I added handling of this errno to my source code.

It usually helps to tell people the O/S you're running on. You're running 
since that's the line that message appears on. My guess is that you are running
dynamic DNS zones and that the DHCP server is constantly adding and removing
records. The message isn't mapped to an internal ISC error code so you see
the message.
