Thanks for the suggestion, that's narrowed it down.  

The log message took a second or so to appear.  On a hunch, I restarted
bind (I'm running a local DNS, mostly to give myself extra headaches, I
think).  Periodically, everything dealing with DNS starts bogging down,
restarts usually help.

Sure enough, this was the case.  Time to start mucking with the DNS
server again.... I *know* my configuration is hosed in several ways.
