Hello From France,

Due to hardware issues, I had to reinstall my BIND which works fine before.
I had reinstalled in first a bind 9-2-4, and following the problem which
I will describe, I had upgraded in bind 9.3.2P1, the problem is always
present

Now I have got a critical issue with Bind now :

The first request is always very long or (sometimes fails), the others
are ok. ( and lookup failure don't concern all domains, for example the
host smtp.wanadoo.fr causes one)
The first query time for a host or a domain is never under 1200 to 1500
ms, which causes failures clients lookup (and "hosts not found" with"
mailer-daemon" with my mail system )


--> I have checked my Bind config with www.dnsreports.com and all seems
to be good, idem for zonecheck.fr

In attachement, you cand find :
- a dig.smtp.wanadoo.fr example
- my named.conf
- named.conf.options
- named.conf.local

Thanks to help me for solving this problem.

Thank for your help, From France!

Christophe Dumonet.
