Per a previous post:

With 9.5.x comes verbose logging of EDNS transactions. What does this mean? According to isc.org:

EDNS (Extension Mechanisms for DNS) have been available for around eight years and many servers (and all root servers) support it. Some firewalls don't support EDNS by default, some authoritative servers fail to respond to EDNS queries (instead of returning an required error), and timeouts also may be caused by network problems, dead servers, broken middle boxes, and broken authoritative servers. BIND 9.5 makes fallback to plain DNS from EDNS due to timeouts more visible.

If you want to silence the logging noise, edit named.conf as follows (under "logging" section):

category edns-disabled { null; };

Read more about EDNS in the documentation for Bind9.5.x on isc.org
