Tracing Response Packets at the Querying Server

I am running bind-9.7.2-P3, and I am having a problem with BIND or
the network or the Ubuntu operating system.  I send a DNS query from
one of my DNS servers to another of my DNS servers.  I see in a tshark
trace that the reply packet is received back at the querying server, but
dig produces a timeout message.  Can I set some trace level to see if
the reply packet is being seen by BIND?  And I am not sure into which
logging category the trace records would be written.  Thanks.
