I used to get the same problem running a split DNS. By the time the
response arrived the resolver on the firewall had timed out. Because
the response was however cached, the reload worked fine. My internal
named.boot used to look like:
Now it looks like
forwarders 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
and I no longer have the problem.
