It looks like a secret key mismatch. Could you check that the dnsdist
server and client use the same configuration file, or at least have the
same key (look for setKey() in the configuration file)?

Anyway you should have more information in the server's logs. For a key
mismatch, you can expect to see something like:

Got an exception in client connection from Could not
decrypt message
