Nope, nothing like this here. My network is rather small,
reverse-lookups only occur during mailtransfer etc.
I less'ed the entire log, nothing but queries and notifications about
BIND simply stops resolving hostnames: Most resolve fine, but some
don't. I'm not authoritative for them.
Not reproducible in any way, occurs infrequently.
Any idea what might cause this (usually I use djbdns)?
There's a way out of any cage.
