thanks - even thought there is no firewall between those 2 boxes it was
the main gateway firewall at fault. Seems checkpoint and smart defence
thinks that DNS from bind is some form of attack and drops it eg
Service: domain-udp (53)
Attack Name: Invalid DNS
Information: Attack Info: Badly formed DNS
so turning off that rule in smart defence cleared up the issue!
thanks and sorry for the post as it seems a checkpoint issue.
