Hello ~ can anyone answer me below questions ?

 # The server is RHEL5.4

 1. What is the timeout value if a forwarders server specified in
 named.conf is down and how many retry
 does it do ?

 2. If the client makes a query for same FQDN for the second times after
 the forwarders server has comes back online,
 does this query give up and does not bother asking the forwarders server
 as the first query to the forwarders server previoursly
 timed out ?
