I just tried
and it did not help. I noticed a drop in the number of recursing clients and
the number of queries/s when a lookup failed for the local zone but named
logged no special messages in the syslog.
Is is possible that is this connected to rndc stats? I will stop doing
rndc stats for a while to test (it currently runs every minute).
BTW: I also excluded packet loss as cause of the problem.
