[Dnsmasq-discuss] intermittant failure to resolve

I've been having a frustrating issue with resolving a particular domain
through my dnsmasq server. It seems that 60-70% of the time that I
attempt to look up any host in debian.org, I get a failure to
resolve. Trying again three or four times eventually gets a success.
I've looked elsewhere, debian.org's nameservers seem to be functioning
fine, and other people I know do not have this problem.
I decided to try an experiment, I switched from using dnsmasq to using
bind, and the problem went away.
I dont have a very complicated dnsmasq configuration, its as follows:
# filter what we send upstream
# allow /etc/hosts and dhcp lookups via *.local
I'd appreciate any debugging suggestions, as I'm at a loss.
