You may want to check a full trace to that example from your site and 
see all the timeouts, and/or tcpdump to prove it to yourself.

They may also be rate limiting you if one of your clients is relaying a 
random subdomain attack against one of these domains.

You'd need to increase two timeouts if you wanted to avoid this (the 
per-NS 1500ms one and the overall 7000ms query timeout). Most clients 
will give up after that long though, but hopefully a cache hit on the 
next try.
