    We have 2 webservers and two DNSonly servers.
    They are setup as a cluster with the webservers synchronize changes to both DNSonly servers.

    Everything seems to be working fine and zones are synced between the servers.

    When I check #dig on the DNSonly servers it fails on some domains but not all domains:
    status: SERVFAIL

    However, if I query the DNSonly servers from another server for the same domain, I get the correct answer.

    Can anyone point me to where the problem is?

    Hello :)

    To clarify, are you using "dig @localhost" on your DNS-Only server when this happens?

    Thank you.
