Are you really sure that you're running BIND 8.3.3 (if so, you should
upgrade it right now)?  The log message looks like one produced by a
BIND9 named.

Assuming it's BIND9...
as to why: it's out of memory as the log message indicates
as to how to fix it: unless it's an old version of BIND9 that has
memory leak, specify a reasonable max-cache-size value.
