Agreed. The problem here is the TCP fall-back vs BIND/OS tuning. I've
got a lot of Windows clients (mostly vmware related infra) that don't
query via TCP. I would focus on a deeper inspection of the environment
including network layer. The OP needs to figure out why the queries are
Speculating based on the available data, I'm wondering if the new BIND
servers were stood up behind a firewall...possibly with broken protocol
inspection/fixup type configuration limiting UDP packet size to 512
bytes...and zone data with large NS/whatever RR sets resulting in TCP
