Wow, a lookup that takes more than 57 seconds? Now that's a loooong query, 
even on a busy server.
Anyway, if you happen to ask the server second time after 56 seconds, than 
that's more probable.
I guess it should work correctly nonetheless.

It's not incorrect, but discouraged.
See, last two paragraphs of section 3.6.2
