[CentOS] Apparent BIND problem doing RBL lookups for Postfix

My apologies if I'm posting the wrong place, or am asking a common
question. All my looking so far hasn't turned up anything very useful
in knowing what to look at, or what to modify.

---
CentOS 5, running BIND 9.3.6
i386

Hardware:
P4, 2.8Ghz, 1G memory
Sata drives - non mirrored etc.

Load is light, usually under 0.1

--
This box is running Postfix as our mail server. BIND (9.3.6) [Latest.]

--
Problem:
Postfix is doing RBL lookups on zen.spamhaus.org.
Everything goes along groovy - but then lookups start failing.

Early in the process, we get stuff like this: [We have a "successful"
lookup, and then a failure...]

---
As you can see, we had a lookup succeed and then just right after, one fail - claiming it got no answer from BIND. I get others after this that SUCCEED - so it's not in 100% failure mode yet.
After time [how much, I don't know] eventually all the zen queries
[or most all] fail.

A bind restart fixes the problem. [Hmmm...]

---
I do some logging in bind, and I don't see any reason for them to fail. Here's a bind debug log of 5 on that failure above.

As far as I can see, the BIND query simply didn't get a response -
but no errors?

---
First, someone's going to ask - perhaps Zen's blocking you. I don't
think so. Here's why.
-We're non-commercial, using the definition set my spamhaus,
-mail connects TOTAL are well less than 100K a day. (Less than 10K in actuality)
-and thus having more than 300K queries is pretty unlikely.

-Also, let me remind you that a restart of the bind service seems to
make the failures go away for a while, so if zen were blocking our queries, I'd think that wouldn't make a difference.

---
I certainly suspect a problem with BIND, but I can't find it, and have no idea where to go from here.
I simply don't know where to look any more. If BIND were having a problem, say allocating memory, or something, shouldn't it be in a debug level 5 log?

HELP!

-Greg

[Cross posted from elsewhere, but I'm at a dead-end right now, so
looking for a steer in where to ask, or direct help! TIA]
