BIND timeout...

Does anybody know when and why the timeout behavior of named changed w.r.t.
clients asking it a question?  The timeout is now about 15 seconds, but it
used to be much longer.  This change happened somewhere around 8.2, but I'm
not quite sure where.  What happens with 8.2.3 is when named takes too long
to chase down the resolution path of some name asked for by a client, it will
hand back an error response after about 15 seconds (or is that 16 seconds),
but continue the resolution process...
