I agree, though it would be nice if there were some *warning* in the CACHE.LOG about slow DNS transactions.

That plus the huge difference in speed tells me that you have very
broken IPv6 connectivity. Most likely ICMP is not working on your
network, or one of your upstreams.

ICMP is not an optional protocol. It is mandatory for efficient
congestion control, even in IPv4 networks.
