    Hrm, not sure what you're referring to ... yet.  Looks like I'll be 
delving back into some of my bind books to figure this 'recursive' thing 
out.  Looking back, the requests were coming in by the hundreds, from 
several dozen IPs.  And they're all hitting ONE of the 5 DNS servers we 
have.  Not even the secondary (to that one), just that one single 
machine.  Odd.  Oh well.  It's gone away now that I've got them 
firewalled out.  Until they take over another network and start up 
again...  Can't even begin to wonder why they're querying DNS servers 
like that...
