Possible DNS Problems

I am running FreeBSD 5.2.1-Release on two systems, a server that acts as a NAT 
Gateway for my cable service, and a client.  When trying to load various 
websites on the client machine, I get a delay, usually about 25 seconds, 
during which Mozilla will tell me it's resolving the hostname.  I also get 
the same situation with Konqueror or lynx.  It only happens on certain sites, 
for example, Bankone.com.  With loading Bankone.com, after the homepage 
initially loads, I can load any page on the site without problems.  Using 
this same system, and dual booting into Windows, I find that I can load these 
sites with no problem, leading me to believe that it is a configuration 
problem with my FreeBSD installation; however, I can not figure out what the 
problem is.  I would really appreciate any help in this matter.

Thanks in advance,
