Are those boxes directly handling your DNS requests to the internet for 
you  - i.e. their IPs show up in the test results as the DNS Resolvers? 
If yes, probably your named.conf would need to be looked at in the 
problem box.

More likely, it's your nameserver in your resolv.conf or the nameserver 
of your nameserver that the test site is talking to. You have to bug 
whoever runs those boxes about the problem.
