I've seen this happen if you have a PPPoE connection (such as ADSL) on an
external NIC. When the connection falls asleep, there is no activity on that
NIC and DNS service will stop responding even if the connection were to come
Can you describe your infrastructure with a little more info to better
determine what the problem is?
