The nfs server will try to do a dns lookup of the client ip address to
find the client hostname for the purpose of logging this information
to the system logs.  One the server can the client IP address be

  $ ssh server
  $ host A.B.C.D   # look up client IP address

Does that succeed?  Example:

  $ ssh www.example.com
  host domain name pointer www.example.com.

I suspect that your DNS on the server is not functioning.
