I took a quick look into it last night. What I saw with tcpdump was the
UDP DNS query going out, the response coming back, then my host responded
with an ICMP "destination unreachable" message. So it looks like when the
DNS response packet is received, my host cannot find the matching UDP port
for the received packet.

All this was on the host server's IP address. I didn't even start my

Hope this helps,
