Wow, do I feel like an idiot ... there's dumb and then there's the message I sent in. I just took a quick look and *ASSUMED* the name in parentheses after the client IP address was the hostname of the IP address. Nope.
Looking at another line from the log and actually READING it I see this is not the case:
27-Sep-2012 17:17:00.236 client 192.168.5.69#5965 (mail.schnauzerproblems.com): query: mail.schnauzerproblems.com IN A +
I am ashamed.
