Probably by fixing your DNS. Does
resolve after the system has finished booting? Did you
change something significant on your system (or on your
connection) regarding DNS?

You could disable ntpd, or statically assign the IP of using /etc/hosts as a workaround.

For comparison (output trimmed):

% drill 150     IN      A 150     IN      A 150     IN      A 150     IN      A
