Although it may not be a problem on your end of the network.  You
could be seeing a spike in DNS queries because somebody really, really
wants to talk to a remote location that is having problems.

DNStop may be able to help you pinpoint what DNS queries are giving
you problems:

Run it on the DNS server to see if there are any queries that you are
seeing get repeated continuously.
