Am having the very same problem and also when i restart named
everything returns to normal.
i figured it was becuase the PIX firewall ASA which blocks queries
bigger than 512 but even removing that rule didn't work.
now I temporarly configured a BIND 8 server and forwarded public DNS
servers to it.
anyway my error is server failed not timed out
