My guess is that the initial client closed its TCP connection with 
dnsdist, leading dnsdist to close its TCP connection to the recursor as 
well. 1.7.0 might do a bit better in that regard because it reuses 
outgoing TCP connections more aggressively when possible, but the real 
fix might be to lower the severity of that log message in the recursor.
