BIND can't find root nameservers

I have a recurring problem on a Debian machine that is running named.
The bind program becomes unable to get the address of the root
nameservers and fills up /var/log/daemonlog,/var/log/syslog with
messages to that effect.

sysquery: no addrs found for root NS (M.ROOT-SERVERS.NET)
 This causes the /var partition to completely fill up, which
 then causes various problems (no mail, no printing, and now I see
 also that it stops named from working).

 Can I configure the logging options somehow to limit the retained logs?

 Or better yet solve the named "no addrs found" problem?

 Any help would be appreciated.
