Ah, this is not a DNS problem.

You are trying to run freebsd-update from 6.3-STABLE.  This isn't
supported.  From the freebsd-update(8) manpage:

"The FreeBSD Security Team only builds updates for releases shipped in
binary form by the FreeBSD Release Engineering Team, e.g., FreeBSD
6.1-RELEASE and FreeBSD 6.2-RC1, but not FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE or FreeBSD
