better to have a 5 (or even 1) minute cron job that tries a DNS query
(one which should be resolved locally - from either a real or dummy
domain served on that machine or the local network). if the request
times out, restart bind.

minimal delay, and no unneccessary bind restarts (restarting bind WILL
impact on everything else on the network)


ps: sorry, i don't have a real solution/answer to the problem, just an
improved version of your Q&D fix.
