DNS timeouts

I have asked a similar question regarding to this issue, but
so far no solutions were made. Please help me.

I have a FreeBSD 4-STABLE box with udp.log_in_vain enabled.
Since the computer has 3 IP’s and only one network card
(virtual hosts) it should resolve names pretty fast (lot’s
of services).
So I got these error messages:
Connection attempt to UDP FreeBSD Box:4320 from DNS:53
Connection attempt to UDP FreeBSD Box:1363 from DNS:53
This is because the DNS lookups are timing out. So I had set
up a DNS server on the FreeBSD itself for the errors to stop.

I just have no luck with it. The same errors come up. I just
simply can’t understand how this time out could happen if it
goes on localhost. And the DNS is not overloaded.

I also tried to edit the /etc/resolv.conf file and add a
„lookup file bind
„ line but I think this is not supported in FreeBSD. At
least it’s not in the manual and it didn’t help.

What can I do? I don’t want to disable udp.log_in_vain!
