What was the source port? If it's UDP 53, then that's a reply to one of 
your queries. Sometimes the connection tracking loses the outbound entry so 
the reply looks like an orphan. Make sure your evidence is very good before 
accusing someone of shenanigans. Maybe you could post a couple firewall log 
entries showing what you're seeing? (I haven't seen your other post, maybe 
you already did that.)
