I am only seeing this with the B systems at the moment.. and I am
trying to figure out how I should 'fix' my firewall or backbone DNS
server to deal with it.

Our campus DNS servers will 'proxy' a request to the backbone DNS
servers and when it talks to the B servers, we get requests back from
different IP address from what we sent to (thus our firewall drops it
as a bad session).

129.24.8.1.32768 > 192.228.79.201.domain
192.228.79.200.domain > 129.24.8.1.32768
192.228.79.202.domain > 129.24.8.1.32768
192.228.79.201.domain > 129.24.8.1.32768

This really picked up on Saturday when pretty much every send to the
192.228.79.201 server got 1 to 2 other returns from b1.ip4.int,
b2.ip4.int etc.

The only other servers that the firewall seems to be dropping are some
'questionable' ones in Romania that showed up over the weekend.
