Weird problem.

For some reason our servers(BIND 9.3.2) will not resolve one domain.  
Well, it is the only one that has not worked. My users tell me it was  
working last week. The domain is This is what I get  
when I lookup the domain using my master name server within my network 
( recursion is turned off).

;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

It takes a few seconds for it to give that response. Like it can't  
even query the server with that string. However I have not had any  
problems resolving any other domains. It doesn't even act like it  
would with a domain that doesn't exist at all. It immediately  
responds back with a "not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)"

The only changes I have made since last week are to my zone files for  
my local domain hostnames. I double check all entries I make using  
forward and reverse lookups. BIND is not complaining about anything.  
Anyone see this before?
