[dnsdist] Marking downstream Unexplained

Following this thread, when I create a rule to forward queries from Amazon servers (200 QPS)to my Abuse Pool makes my abuse server become unstable.

I have enabled maxCheckFailures=5 but the issue persist.

Anyone knows how to deal with this?

Thanks a lot

Right, perhaps we should log health check errors if
setVerboseHealthChecks() is set to true, regardless of whether dnsdist is in verbose mode. I'll make that change.
