I saw something very similar with versions of 9.7 and I believe 9.8.

I was never able to pin it down, and never collected any evidence that
it was BIND itself that was the problem, but I did have to restart it
on several occasions when recursive queries suddenly started to fail.

Your suspicions are similar to mine although your setup appears not to
be.  I was using self-compiled binaries on a Debian system, but I do
run DNSSEC.  Now that I'm runnning 9.9 the problem seems to have gone.

Try upgrading?

Is your server also authoritative?
