Not to my knowledge.  The machines are bog standard CentOS 5.6 machines, 
using the stock "host" command that comes with CentOS 
(bind-utils-9.3.6-16.P1.el5  package).

No it does not, running dig against both the recursors and the 
authoritative, whether going thru the load balancer, or directly to the 
machines, no NXDOMAIN responses are given.

It's erratic.  I have seen pings fail due to failure to resolve the 
hostname, other times it works just fine.
