Maybe it's the caching server then? You say everything works fine,
have you tried 'dig'-ing @localhost for the addresses used in your Yum

Is the system firewalled for outgoing connections? Are yum's DNS
queries possibly generating either TCP or UDP packets being dropped by
the firewall?

Is the system running SELinux? Could it be that there's no valid
SELinux policy/context for DJBDNS cache? Is your DJBDNS compiled from
source or from a package?

Have you tried upping the yum log level with -d99 or similar?
