I have had the same problem, but I have ignored it sistematically because 
it is the secondary server of my AIX 4.1.3: if the RISC did it's job 
right, I wouldnt get ANY message from my FreeBSD. The problem may be with 
the recent BINDs that are being modified to use IPng in the future or to 
close several security problems. Try getting a newer version if the 
problem gets big.
Anyone has another idea?
