In the future, please don't cross post to both freebsd-questions, and
another list at the same time. Thanks.

In an ideal world you would upgrade to the latest RELENG_6 and pick up
all the bug fixes in the OS, plus the latest version of BIND. If
that's not possible for some reason, your best bet is to upgrade to
the latest BIND from the ports, make sure that you build it WITHOUT
threads, and see if that resolves the issue for you.

If it doesn't resolve your issue, you'd be better off sending a
message to the bind-users at list.
