DNS Failure Messages

Any ideas about a problem I'm geting at the momement? When making
requests for some sites, on occasion squid returns an error message
to the user stating that the lookup failed - and that this proably
means that the site doesnt exist. In most cases the site does exist,
and a quick check using nslookup on the same server finds the address
without any problems.

Im using Squid.1.1 (not NOVM - although planning upgrading to this
soon), under FreeBSD 2.2.5.

The system isn't particularly loaded (where moving from test to live)
- only have about 16 connections/40 odd sockets active at peak times!

Any advice welcomed.
