I've mentioned this before, but the dns/adns port provides some handy  
utilities for putting a DNS server under high loads.

Something like the following command will generate anywhere from 200  
queries/sec to 1500+ queries/sec, depending on the IPs involved in  
the logfile you use, and how rapidly the remote nameservers respond:

   /usr/local/bin/adnslogres -c 500 < /var/log/httpd-access.log >! /
